Let's Face it!
I've been diagnosed with PD since Early 2011. I still have good cognitive skills and try to keep active mentally and physically. I do cryptic crosswords, write short story's. I also write lousy poetry. The main problems I've had are, akynesia (freezing), dyskinesia, muscle pull and periods of switch-off). I take 187.5 mg of Madopar a day plus a Madopar CR at night and a 24 hour patch (Rotigotine). I have been active and fit for most my life, but do have two replacement knees (the curse of the marathon runners). I've been managing pretty well until about early-November when I started getting severe muscle pull in my face, particularly around the mouth. It' a horrible sensation and is affecting me more than anything before. At about the time it started I was under a quite a bit of stress, due a dodgy purchase. This may be coincidence.
Has anyone out there had this problem? Can anyone advise on non-medicinal treatment? It' spoiling my sleep and that's something I've never had trouble with.
