Advice & Tips: This is to track possible neuropathy. Disregard treatment. I asked the neurologist about my numb feet. It is symmetrical, so probably not directly related to PD. Several blood tests eliminated several causes. We are in "watch" mode. In March 2017, it seems like my left middle finger is tingling. I hope it's only related to my sore neck. Right fingers are ok.

Advice & Tips: I have a former coworker from working hospice that has become a wonderful friend and support system. She comes over as many times a week as I need. She does healing touch and massage on me. It helps my nausea, migraines, pain, and I'm usually able to get a nice nap afterwards. There are a lot of things that have happened since I got ill that I have questioned why, but meeting her definitely happened for a reason!!

Advice & Tips: Use a slow rubbing motion up and down the length of the the neck and around the circumference of the neck. Be careful and gentle when you massage around the front of your neck. I have personally found the muscles on the side of my neck and the areas below the back of my ear to be the most beneficial areas to massage.

Advice & Tips: Please consider trying Myo Fascial Release. My new Neurologist wasn't even sure that I had Parkinsons, until she moved my limbs. Myo fascial stretches and releases the fascia around our muscles. I truly feel that my PT Specialist has slowed the progression of my Parkinsons. He stretched out my neck more so that I eliminated any swallowing restrictions. My neck is now in allignment with my body!!
