Very newly diagnosed although have been seeing a neurologist for about 2 years - not a complete shock but still a hefty dose of reality.
Immediately given Ropinerole (2mg) which made me really ill with sickness, hot, cold etc… A week’s worth of Domperidome had resolved the side effects and now on week 2, due to increase to 4mg next week.
My overwhelming horror is that the tremor has exacerbated badly. Previously the tremor was mild, so I thought, and I could hide or at least control it. Now, it’s terrible and very obvious and I’m struggling to type and write which hadn’t previously been an issue. Next week I’m due to present to 250 people and whilst I never relish the opportunity I’m now terrifies as it’s going to be more noticeable.
I haven’t actually told anyone apart from my husband. I dread the thought of telling my parents - don’t want to upset them; and work colleagues - I’m good at my job and don’t need their pity.
