Irregular arm swing when walking
« on: April 24, 2014, 06:15:39 AM »
Ok, just when I thoguht my anxiety couldnīt get any worse I find a "new" symptom indicating Young onset Parkinsons; my arm swing when walking is off. Sometime my left arm swings, sometimes my right arm swing, but they never seem to swing perfectly when I have both hands free (I mostly walk with my dog). I tend to keep tension in one arm regardless of if Iīm holding something or not, and they almost never swing freely (always some tension holding the natural arm swing back).

My logical reasoning behind this is that it could have something to do with actual tension, I.e. that Iīm tensing up due to anxiety and thus restrict movement somewhat. Could it realy be that simple?

I keep reading that people are diagnosed by their lack of arm swing, but can Parkinson realy be the only illness that affect arm swing? Wouldnīt tension due to anxiety also affect arm swing and walking pattern?

And if anxiety related, what can I do to alleviate some tension from my muscles?
