Symptoms of Dystonic Tremor

The symptoms of dystonic tremor can differ from patient to patient. Sometimes sensory tricks can temporarily cause tremor to disappear, such as, if the patient has head tremor, then placing the head against a headrest or a light touch to the chin can resolve the dystonic tremor of the head. Dystonic tremor can also affect the patient’s quality of life and cause tiredness in the patient and feels of isolation in social gatherings. Anxiety or stress worsens all types of dystonia also symptoms of dystonic tremor. In some patients, a small quantity of alcohol can temporarily relieve the symptoms of dystonic tremor; however, patient can experience a rebound worsening of the dystonic tremor the next day.

Good morning on this coldish, wet morning here in Newie today's extreme creature is the really cute Quokka.

They can be found in the south-western part of Western Australia in particular on Rottnest Island. There they win over the hearts of many visitors with their relaxed and friendly nature.

They are also known as the short-tailed scrub wallaby, is a small macropod about the size of a domestic cat.

While our quokkas are certainly friendly, touching and petting them is not permitted. Quokkas and birds on Rottnest Island have been known to deliver a nasty bite as well as carry diseases like Salmonella.

In the Stone Age people who didn't feel well someone would cut a hole in the persons body with a sharp stone to allow the pain to escape.....Really how does anyone know that.

WEEK 38 OF 2022

 Had a good night, I woke Tim to help me this morning, he said he went to bed at 1.30am, I thought ok but I still need help.

Kathy came and showered my at Jess's place.

Tim at last cleaned up out the back where I used to sit during the day as it was a right mess and I haven't been able to sit out there since June due to the damage from the tree coming down.

Had a good night up at 5.40am and had Tim help me dress, as I had to unpack the dishwasher before she came down as she would only go off that her didn't do it.

Tim up at 7.50am which is early for him.

Workmen turn up to work on the bathroom including the painter, at 2.30pm the plumber turned up to install toilet, sink and shower. It will be ready for use tomorrow.

Used the new toilet this morning there was water in front of the bowl so I placed a towel in front of it.

The guy in charge of the bathroom reno came and picked up all the rubbish and said someone should be here tomorrow to do the curtain rods.

Late this arvo the people came to remove the porta loo and shower.

Received part of my Kmart order a big box for two small packets of colouring pencils. Talk about a waste.

Another day to struggle through and it is suppose to rain today.

Sandy rang at 10ish to say she was coming to take me to the cemetery as Mum & Dad's headstone as it now has two extra photos on it. One of Mum and one of Mum & Dad on their wedding day.

Tim sent me a message saying he was 3hrs early for work, he read the shift info wrong. He didn't bother to come home though.

The bathroom guy came and installed the shower curtain.

Woke to the sound of rain at 4.30am, got up and went to the loo then to the kitchen to check the roof it was leaking so placed bowl to catch the water and turned the full dishwasher on.

A public holiday to mourn the Queen, also my 38th wedding anniversary.

We had planned to go out for lunch but it was raining too much so cancelled. Had KFC instead.

Last day of term 3 for schools and still wet.

I am in a lot of pain in my knees and back. I let out a scream when I had a shot of pain in my knee. Tim came running out and was angry only because he was worried.

Jess came and got me changed for bed, I rang Tasha to come help me into bed and she was in a foul mood made me think I should have asked Leo.

Had a good night and I am in less pain this morning.

Tim picked up the shower chair from Sandy's, so Kathy can give me a shower.

Kathy arrived at 1.30 and showered me and it was good.
