I have Parkinsons disease and have had it for about
5-6 years. Since the fall of 2006, I have had episodes of foot dystonia in my left foot. I have the rigid type of Parkinsons. In the past year and now lately, I have been experiencing more frequent episodes of dystonia and now a lot of times in both legs and feet. It is very disabling and lasts sometimes for an hour or until the meds kick in. Its really a problem, when this occurs and you're away from home too.
Has anyone else out there experienced similar problems in dealing with Parkinsons and what, if anything are they doing to deal with the associated dystonia? Any sugestions would be helpful. I have read about apomorphine and botox injections, but not sure I'm ready for this yet.
Thanks A Lot
