I was originally diagnosed with benign positional vertigo and then vestibular migraine before the diagnosis of Parkinsons/Multilple System Atrophy. Does anyone have this sensation of walking around drunk or wearing the wrong glasses. I also become very fatigued when I do small chores around the house and end up having to rest. I don't have a tremor as such and don't believe I have many of the… read more
Hello @ my fellow atypical Parkinson-MSA friends. First time I heard about feeling like I was drunk without any alcohol and the foggy feeling in my head and the vertigo which is exactly how I feel. I also have the non-motor dysfunction- constipation, wetting my pants which makes me wear Depends, swallowing problems, soft voice, memory ( short term ) problems. Tremors was not an issue with me. We are I believe the minority in this Parkinson Journey. Hope and Pray that these MSA-Parkinson symptoms are kind to you in the coming months or years. GOD BLESS.
It seems to be more common than I thought. Thank you Pammie for asking. I see that it is more of the atypical Parkinson's answering.
@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member. Yes indeed I have the same fogginess have had my glasses checked three times besides and I get very tired after not doing much tho not all the time but some of the time and my balance is not good. Hoping when I get back on a good regimen with my pills and I will feel better because I've had a problem with the manufacture so I haven't had my regular doses like I'm used to hope you get improved in all these frustrating things we go through
@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member. I have low and raspy voice too. My own personal opinion would be to continue with the carbidopa and give it more time because it supposed to be the best drug on the market for us. I get side effects from it if I take my medicine at 10:30 at night I apparently sleep to some of that so it works normally pretty well for me
@ norma Jean hope your meds will start helping you. I had been given the wrong manufacture of my carbidopa so I'm waiting for it to all get out of my system which can take months so in the meantime I have the same symptoms you do but dealing with it like you are hope we both get lucky
