Am experiencing weakness in left arm , TIA some 2 years ago and have subsequently also been diagnosed with Parkinsons, has anyone else also had the misfortune of drawing both short straws and had symptoms which are relevant to both conditions.
Hi @Headache so sorry to hear about you now having Parkinsons following the TIA, I don’t have any experience of Parkinsons but wanted to let you know I’m thinking of you.
Hopefully there will be someone on the forum that can offer you advice.
@Headache welcome back, really sorry you have Parkinson’s. I haven’t got any experience to share with you sorry. Someone might be able to advise and share information with you on our forum.
I have gone on to have other problems and ailments. It’s rubbish isn’t it just when you feel your coming to terms with having a stroke, wham something else happens. I totally get it. I hope someone can talk to you on here about it.
Wishing you best of luck sending hugs too . Loraine
I had my TIA 2years ago & had adopted owing to the TIA a body Tremor which was analysed for a was for a while thought to be Parkinson
But owing to the flexibility of my limbs it’s was then diagnosed as a resting/incidental tremor with my medication has diluted the tremor though when anxious ect it dose becomes a more noticeable almost uncontrollable shake where I find myself almost immediately getting myself back to a quite place ( my flat) & taking the rest of the day to bring myself back to the gentle shake my body & self have since accepted
Thankfully not getting any headaches or warning as such internally though I’m very well aware of being in certain social situations I start to perspire & feel uncomfortable where my tremor becomes something I need to address ) & sort myself/tremor out …
Many thanks for taking the time to reply, am still in the denial stage with the Parkinson’s but it is interesting that the tremor followed the TIA
Many thanks for replying Loshy
Am still in the denial stage with the Parkinson’s just it’s interesting that the tremor followed the TIA.
Keep as well as you can
Many thanks for the kind words.
Am not giving up and will just be fighting on two fronts.
There is medication and great things out these days to take. Try and be positive I know it’s easier said when it’s not me. I know an artist who just turned 50 who was diagnosed with MS and she’s doing really great still painting 4 years on. Also a 78 year old man who’s had it fir 25 years and he’s a farmer, he still drives the tractor and works his field.
Just sharing what I know. Take care Loraine
