OK... first of all what is PD? (I googled it and all i get is Police Department sites)
Second, WHY would you time your blinks? (I mean what made you do that in the first place)
Third, before I even READ this post (so that I wouldn't have pre-conceived notions in my mind) I did an experiment , I went into the kitchen, set the microwave timer for 1 minute and counted how many times I blinked. I was just blinking a THIRD time when the timer beeped - so whatever PD is I have it too... Also, I know that staring a computer screen (reading things) will make you blink WAY less than normal, that is how so many people get dry eyes with computer work. (well jeez, if I am looking at a computer I probably blink once every TWO minutes! LOL!)
Sorry, I've gotten so used to the abbrevation that I take for granted that everyone knows what it means. PD stands for Parkinsons disease, a non-curable degenerative neuro disease. Although my scare is more about the young onset variant (YOPD) and a slow blink rate is supposed to be highly diagnostic since the lack of dopamine is supposed to affect most or all automatic body-functions (such as blinking, swallowing and many more functions).
But blinking isn't my only symptom, in fact more seems to develop every single day.
It started with some rather extreme muscle tension, mostly in my keft side, that wont go away. It slowly progressed to affect most parts of my body, to the extent that I know have a rather akward gait w/o arm swing in left side (also highly diagnostic). Although my arm swing seems to be somewhat affected by my thinking.
I have these near constant tremors, again most notable in left side, but present in both sides (again, highly diagnostic)
As of recently I've developed a slurred soft speech and excess saliva.
I was evaluated by a psychiatrist recently (some sort of light-neuro exam) but he couldn't find anything wrong:/
I've developed several quite severe obsessions, like timing my blink rate and ALWAYS watching my arm swing. I constantly check my neuro-status by doing different tests. Any time I find inconcistencies in arm swing ir blink rate I freak out and feel like ending it right now and then.
I really can't go on like this, it hurts both mentaly and physicaly (from constant tensions etc).
