Anyone else experience this?

Recommended Posts

I had a surprising discovery this morning after waking. While laying in bed, for whatever reason I decided to try the finger tapping test. The one where you tap your index finger to your thumb as quickly as possible. This was one of the tests the doctor used in diagnosing me with PD. I was surprised to find that my right side which is normally affected with slowness was the same as my non-affected side. Usually it is about 75% slower. Has anyone else experienced something similar? I guessing that I have an 'extra' dopamine stored up after sleeping all night. Not a big deal, it just kinda caught me by surprise.

So sleeping is good for PWP.I have experienced this before.If only the extra dopamine stored while sleeping would last throughout the day activities,that would be nice,so we wouldn't need medication for dopa supply.Just good sleep.
