Wait! I got One!
Wait! I got one!
I forgot if I have mentioned it on my blog or not but lately I have noticed that at times my left thumb will move involuntarily or my left foot will do the same, move, like keeping rhythm.
My father had the same happen to him, which my sister said was a bad flu shot reaction. And so did my mother – she had about the same symptoms but she had Parkinson’s disease.
My little body jerks doesn’t seem that serious. It does its jerks quietly and only when unnoticed. It usually happens when I am watching TV or listening to someone talk to me.
As soon as I notice the left parts of my body moving the movements suddenly stops, as if it just caught itself being bad.
Naturally, since it may be Parkinson’s Disease, or whatever Daddy might have had, I would like to get an early medical opinion of what is going on.
Last week I had an appointment with a neurologist. He gave me various little tests with the hammer and knee flex, touch my nose with my eyes closed, and little tests lie that. He said he could see nothing wrong.
But to make sure, he lined me up an appointment to have an M.R.I. later this month.
I was telling a friend about all this via email that of my left thumb and foot movements and the doctor couldn’t find anything wrong.
He said, ‘Well, you can always buy a harmonica and take up the blues.”
