Another diagnosis… another day!

On Monday 26 November, I had to go to hospital for tests. After being examined by two doctors, controlled tests, and electrodes fitted to my muscles, I have been diagnosed with the early stages of elderly Parkinson’s Disease. I also have a secondary condition to this illness called Parkinsonian Syndrome, which is a condition that doesn’t usually affect people until on their mid 60s!

I have been put on a medication called Mirapixen, and this drug is taken once a day to help stop the tremor and muscle spasms that I have been having within the past few months… well keep it under control anyway – but they make me feel very tired, so I shall be taking it later than the time given to me on the instructions.
