I developed a sore throat beginning of week and it has progressed to being inflamed, mucus problems and my glands are swollen. I am waking up at night coughing and it feels like its going on my chest.
I just windered if its just a common bug that has got me (before PD I had a good immune system was lucky if I only had one sniffle/cold a year). OR
Is this just another symptom of PD?
It has been a difficult two weeks, my younger son aged 24 went into hospital having experienced a breakdown mentally/emotionally. He had been trying to cope with depression and keep a brave face, but I stayed up in Orpington for 5 days, was quite calm emotionally but since home on Sunday, I seem to have gone into meltdown and felt so upset, anxious, worried etc. Perhaps this has caused me to become sick with this virus.
I find that I want to be supportive and strong for my family, but its difficult and frustrating.
I messaged my Neuro and he advised I see my GP in first instance and discuss counselling support before he recommends going on to anxiety meds for PD. Reminding me that anxiety will make my symptoms worse!
I am due to see my GP Monday.
