I slept better last night – sleep came quickly, and I didn’t wake until gone 6am. My Group “B”settings weren’t causing me any issues – no dyskinesia to speak of, and my left leg tremor was minimal. It wasn’t until I was downstairs, sitting on the sofa having my first cup of tea, that I noticed some muscle pain in my right chest. It only manifests itself when I try to move after sitting still for a while, and it’s like a vicious cramp. I can’t think of anything that I have done that could have brought it on, aside from changing my neurostimulator over to Group “B” yesterday. If it persists, I’ll have to try switching back to Group “A” settings to see if that helps – it really is very painful!
My wife goes off to work, and I take the dog for her morning walk before my morning date with PopMaster. I’m really not feeling like doing very much today – every time I move, the muscle pain in my chest takes my full attention. I have a number of emails, messages and comments to reply to – a couple of people on Instagram want my help and advice on how to persuade their relatives (who have Parkinson’s Disease) to try cannabis to see if it will help with their symptoms, and there is a lengthy comment on my blog from someone who is approaching deep brain stimulation surgery and has a few questions for me. I busy myself for a while, interacting with my readers – pleased to be of some use to somebody. I fill the log basket with wood – it’s definitely getting a tad chilly in the evening now, and I do love having the woodburner going.
By the time my wife returns from work, I’m in quite a bit of discomfort with my chest, and also the dystonia in my right foot is making its presence felt. After dinner, I try a little self-medication (cannabis) to see if that helps matters.
