Real life stories


#1
I've just watched Dave and Beckys video on real life stories.Both referred to having had a broken arm and they thought their symptoms was somehow related to this.I had a fracture to my wrist when I was 40.When I first started having problems with my right arm,I also put it down to the fracture.Anyone had the same?

How strange my children kept saying to me, Mum its probably a trapped nerve making your arm shake. I broke my right arm above the wrist about 7 years ago.
Me, I just hoped they were right. Then it got worse:frowning:
I broke the wrist on the other arm the following year. :flushed:
All these years and five children and never a broken bone. I blame my dog.:grin:

Washing line pole fell onto my left shoulder many years ago I put later tremor down to this - so did everyone else

#4
About 30 years ago I fell head first into an empty chest freezer while cleaning it out - something snapped in my left shoulder and my arm just hung at my side for two days. (it was`nt funny at the time, but I can laugh now)
Ever since then I`ve had problems with stiff neck and shoulder on that side.
Are you right I wonder, is there a connection with my pd?

Uncanny thread!
I fell onto some concrete and broke my left elbow badly when I was eleven. Had it pinned back together.
Two years later I had a mysterious infection in the same arm and was unable to move it. I was hospitalised for 2 weeks while it was investigated, but no conclusions were reached.
I've often wondered if there could be a connection between that and my Parkinson's because (so far) my left side is my affected side.

I can remember the first time I saw the PD nurse,I told her the stiffness in my wrist was due to a fracture.Her reply was that a lot of patients put the stiffness down to a fall or break.Also are treated like myself for trapped nerves before PD is DX.Is this just a coincidence?Thank you for your replies,and please keep them coming.
