Good evening everyone. I’d like to know if anyone has similar problems to the ones
I currently have. Any advice would be appreciated.
I’m 69. Positive DATscan 6 months ago. Diagnosed with Atypical Parkinson’s & Peripheral Neuropathy with a bit of Arthritis thrown in. I take Amitriptyline for the PN also Ramipril high blood pressure medication.
I had a “freezing episode” last Wednesday during indoor bowls. Two days in hospital & was thoroughly checked out. Everything good. My issues were “Parkinson’s” related they told me.
Until last Wednesday I would have said that my Parkinson’s symptoms were very mild & I am on no Parkinson’s medication … But had a past brief affair with Madopar & Ropinirole … Both stopped after slight negative reaction & no noticeable improvement to my mild symptoms.
But since I got out of hospital late last Thursday I have had extreme difficulty walking. My steps are shorter & my walking speed is half what it was. I did go bowling today & the bowling part was ok with no freezing but walking the 40 yards from one end to the other was an extreme challenge.
Thanks for reading.
