I feel like I have mild Parkinson symptoms, some rigidity like in the jaw, etc
Sometimes my jaw is rigid for hours, its been happening more and more lately.
Parkinson is caused by low dopamine and antipsychotics cause low dopamine by blocking it.
Tell your doctor maybe they can give you something for it
I noted it and will tell my family Dr next apt, need to call the clinic.
@Newlyborn I think you are on Parkinson’s meds?
What is Parkinson, by the way you discribe i have this little issue on Olanzapine, after i take my meds, my hands and feet, like i need to stretch them, its like kind of an itch.
Stiff muscles mainly in the jaw but in my other thread it might be caused by antipsychotics or TMJ dysfunction.
I rememeber I had parkinsonism when I had the first episode of psychosis before taking ap. Today I found that Spontaneous Parkinsonism Is Associated With Cognitive Impairment. I don’t think I have a cognitive impairment. My memory is very bad.
Im always put on artane at hospitals and quit. Two main side effects bother me: heavily blurred vision and decrease in cognition. Also dry mouth is really prevelant.
Some people feel fine on antichistamines, you should try it out, to some it even gives mild euphoria
