I’m 48 years old and had covid for the first time last summer. Lost completely my previously strong sense of smell, now I only have a very weak one. At the end of November I started experience multiple weeks of insomnia, which never happened to me before. My memory is also not what it used to be, but I kept thinking it was stress, hormones and/or long-covid. Then, a couple of weeks ago my thumb started twitching non-stop. I do a lot of physical exercise and have been practicing a lot of yoga, so I thought I overdid it. Had a break from yoga and weightlifting for a few days, but the twitching persisted almost non-stop. Finally, I started using google and found out the Parkinson’s symptoms list. I am trying to book an appointment with my GP but without success. Even with my weak sense of smell I’ve notice a strange BO on me. This together with other signs …I almost can self-diagnose myself.
I will be active here to keep learning as much as I can and hopefully, soon after the official diagnosis, get the right meds to keep myself as healthy as I can for as long as possible.
Thank you for being here.
