I saw my neuro on 16th March and was prescribed half sinemet, he said to see how i go on them and to come back in four months. The prescription didnt have a quantity so i was only given five tablets at the pharmacy and told to call my GP to get another prescription. After a few phone calls i got a phonecall from my neuro secretary who said its very important i stay on these tablets being newly diagnosed with Parkinsons. What?!?! My neuro hadnt said anything about that. Do you think she was just confused?? I’m too scared to phone back and get it confirmed at the moment.
My symptoms started almost two years ago… numbess and heavyness in my legs, left arm and left side face. I was admitted to hospital thinking id had a stroke. I hadnt, i was diagnosed with hemiplegic migraines but the symptoms never went away. I went back to my neurologist and was sent for head, neck and spinal MRI. This has come back clear.
I suffer with coldness, numbness and pins and needles mostly left side. Cramps in both legs and sometimes hands. My calves constantly feel tight and pulled. my face (left side) is always cold and tingly. I walk in to furniture and walls as i loose my balance. I feel like im vibrating from within (if that makes sense?) I have had a few episodes of leg shaking, arm shaking or full body shaking. terrible memory problems and i am ooohhh so tired.
Do any of you suffer with any of this?? I’m a complete newbie in this area and looking for some advice/information. I really don’t know where to start.
Sorry for the long post.
