No mouth twitch so far today!!
I moved the Primidone dose last night to eight instead of seven, in an effort to maximize the amount I would have in my bloodstream during the day. It pretty much wore off by about 6:00 last night, so that’s not bad at all.
I plan to take it tonight at 9:00PM. I took the morning dose at 7:00AM and have not had any mouth twitching so far. My gait is slow but steady, my hand and foot are not shaking, and my shoulder is not jerking.
I have emailed two members of PatientsLikeMe who are also on Primidone to get their experience with it, but I have not had time this morning to do any other research about this medicine.
I’ve been busy with our Lost Toy Search Service and our own toy catalog, and I am trying hard to make myself get off the computer in the evenings. I’ve been watching TV and using the computer at the same time for so long it seems strange to just watch the show. I am finding the long strings of commercials particularly irritating, though, as that’s when I normally get something done on the computer. LOL!
I cannot express how wonderful the last few days have been, and I am so thankful to God for providing doctors and researchers with the skills and experience to find something that is helping me.
I filled out a new PDRS, which allows me to rank my current condition on a list of various Parkinson’s symptoms. Up until this newest score, I was ranging around 25. The highest score of 32 was in January of 2006, when I was finally diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease, and when I could barely walk at all, even with a walker. My score now is SEVEN!!! I’m sure I ranked some of the answers on the optimistic side when I scored it, but I am feeling so great … who cares!!!
