In recent months i have been under a lot of stress, with my lovely old Mum having had several falls this year and in and out of hospital. Now sadly she is living in a nursing home, which is very well run, and she is looked after by friendly attentive carers and Nurses, but finding just the right place and sorting and selling her flat to pay the enormous costs has been taking its toll on my health.
In the last couple of days i have had awful Dyskinesia, suddenly my whole body just went into painful spasms and uncontrollable jerking. Strangely i was not feeling anxious at the time, i was actually enjoying a lovely dinner in a restaurant, my Husband could not believe what he was witnessing and it upset us both. The following day it started again and got worse as the evening progressed. I also felt sick and off balance, i decided to go to bed and it stopped, though i do wake early generally for the loo, i have been experiencing this feeling of anxiety as well.
I have an appointment tomorrow morning with a new PD nurse, made months ago, so i am pleased about that and i will tell him everything, but i wondered if any one has found that continual stress exacerbates the symptoms of PD in this way?
Thanks so much
