Out of the blue one day i felt strange... i felt like i needed to sit down, i realized that my balance was off... this started 8 months ago and i still live with it, it comes and goes... the more im walking then i feel it come on slowly and feel that my balance is not 100%... months passed by from my initial first symptom and now i have developed twiches everywhere, eye lids, cheeks, biceps, calves, thighs, chest, i think my prostate too... ive seen my thumb and pinky twitch before, few times only, ive seen my pinky have a twitch/tremor for a few seconds.. oh and my toes have twitched before... i have a slight pain that i get on the bridge of my nose and also feel like my left side of face feels numb but when i touch it i can feel it normaly... recently i feel that theres something stuck in my throat, feel that i have to make more of a effort to swallow... MRI was normal... All labs were normal... saw a doctor recently and told me it was anxiety.. strange because i dont feel anxious?... he had me walk in a straight line, walk on my toes, checked reflexes... says that its all normal.. for along time i was thinking i have MS but now im leaning heavy on PD... all my symptoms come and go.
Edit: two weeks from my first symptoms i saw a doctor who ran all my labs, all normal... i saw a nuero who had me walk, check my reflexes, mri, all normal... at this time my only complaint was my balance.... Mri came back normal, spoke on the phone with him and told me it was anxiety?... i have a hard time swallowing that.
Also about two years ago or maybe longer i remember one day at work that i caught my pinky twitching for a couple of seconds and had never seen it do it agian until now at times when my body starts to twicth.
I also had a scare last night when i woke up to a slight pain and noticed my right arm had feel asleep and i was sleeping on my left side with not pressure on my right arm.. i remember seeing my pinky twiching/tremoring but im not sure because i instantly started to shake my arm and everything went away in about ten seconds... i was so scared i couldnt go back to sleep, it never came back.
i lost my job because the balance issue was driving me mad, i have no insurance at the moment... when im in bed i feel 100% fine, even when i walk around the house i feel fine but when i have to go run to the store or go into a mall, watch a movie i feel that my balance is not 100% and the cordination is not 100%... i do find myself moving a little slower at times when im those areas only because i dont feel confident with my walk... but if i wanted to walk fast, jump out of my chair i could without a problem.. its so strange... i also get this like im going down a fast elevator when i start to feel unbalance.
sorry for rambling.... I really think its PD.... any response will be helpful, thank you.
Oh and i notice my knees will start to feel weak when i walk at times to, i do notice that i keep them locked because of the feeling of my balance... sometimes i do prefer to keep walking then standing in place, when i stand in place my knees feel weaker.
- i tested my writing, looks fine
- arm swings when i walk
- do feel stiffness but iam in bed like 90% of the day
- no tremor
- i dont see any rigidity
