  1. Currently experiencing Shingles. No rash but really sensitive and painful on right side of abdomin. Doctor verified. Anyone else and is it worse with PD? How long did you have symptoms?
  2. Hi Mark I recently applied for VA disability because of bad water at Camp Lejuene North Carolina. Should be getting an answer late July through October this year. I'm 71 and was diagnosed 2 years ago. Good luck.
  3. Not itching but have a real sensitive spot of skin on right abdomin. Just to touch the hair on my stomach is very irritating.
  4. It is nice to know other PWP have similar symptoms - strength in numbers.
  5. I found this information and thought it useful. I'm not promoting their products but this site has some information.
  6. That must be uncomfortable. I hope its not too sevier. There is a small part of my abdoman where the skin is super sensitive.
  7. Since we are on this subject how does a tincture compare to oil? Do they make oil and tinctures with specific mmj straines in mind? Do they make sativa and indica oils and tinctures? Thanks
  8. CBD from the non THC hemp plant is useless. CBD from the actual marijuana plant is the desirable oil. They are both called hemp. The CBD from the marijuana plant is taken from the flower, where in the non THC hemp the oil is taken from processing the whole plant. I believe that is correct.
  9. I dont really enjoy the high either but have felt the effects in certain parts of my body which does feel soothing and beneficial. I think the strain of cannabis is important.
  10. I have wondered the same thing.
  11. My left side is affected. I often find that im tensing my arm musles. When i notice it i can consciously relax it. Same for left arm tremors. Its not uncomfortable. The tensing seems to come from some subconscious or lack of conscious control. Anyone else?
  12. So with increasing symptoms do you increase meds ? How long do you wait to see your MDS? I mean what do you do?
  13. I know this subject has been discussed but wanted to get a fresh view on the subject with current situations. I'm having a difficult time sleeping. I know this is PD related because I've never had issues before. This has just started and been going on for about a week or so and feels like it will probably continue. Just not being able to get a deep sleep. Feels like I'm awake most of the night or wake up and just lay there with my eyes closed but not sleeping. Sometimes i just feel really restless. I know others have had difficulty for a very long time. I'm out of Xanax but would normally take .25 mg. I've tried Clonazepam and Lorazepam each only taking .25mg but they seem to make me jittery. I took the Lorazepam last evening and it did help some but still jittery at first. I'm really paranoid about taking too much meds. Actually I'm paranoid about taking anything but know i have to have something. I'm currently on 2 c/l - 25/100 3 times daily. I'm interested in knowing what others have used or how it's been dealt with. Thanks
  14. My experience with constipation. I have Gerd as well as IBS. I have found for me that high fiber cereal in the morning as well as a very specific routine for BM's is critical (train the bowel) to eliminate everyday at the same time. Sit on the toilet for as long as it takes to have a movement same time everyday. I also dont eat anything without fiber in it. No fiber, no eat.
  15. IMHO our current government is run by the weathiest corporations and a bunch of corrupt old men that are still living in the past. Things will change in 4 years and go in the other direction. Yoyo effect. The extremist on both sides.
