I am a person that can very quickly see connections between subjects. So I will show you some obvious similarities between panic attacks and Parkinson’s tremors.
You will, of cause say that it is not the same and that you have never had a panic attack. No, but you are older now. You cannot run as fast as when you were 18. Your reflexes are slower, wear glasses, have wrinkles, and show a lot of big and small signs that you are not young anymore.
So, my claim is that your threshold for a lot of things are lowered as you get older, including the threshold for you to shake when you are anxious or excited.
A lot of Parkinson’s posts are about how to deal with anxiety. So instead of thinking that Parkinson’s give you anxiety, instead believe that anxiety gave you the Parkinson’s tremor.
But have a look at my arguments and find your own opinion. I hope that you agree as everyone knows that anxiety can be healed.
Below is a video with a man with a panic attack.
To me, it looks like tremor symptoms.
Below you see a guy telling (no video) about The Fight, Flight, and Freeze Response.
Especially listen to what he is telling about freeze stress response. To me, it sounds like he is talking about the Parkinson’s freeze.
He has the advice to reduce speed in everything you do. Slowness is the speed of “safe situations.” The fast movement you should only use getting away from dangerous situations and exercises.
Moving at the same pace as a calm heartbeat will help you relax.
In MY perspective, Parkinson’s disease and anxiety can be treated in the same ways.
My way is to treat the root causes of anxiety. Most often, it will be removing old traumas. It can take a few sessions or a lot, depending on your problems. I have helped one Parkinson person reducing his stress, and he had only a few traumas and has reduced medicine with 1/3. And I am in the middle of helping one where it takes a longer time, but symptoms are decreasing as the stress gets smaller.
Below is a man telling his tips on how to avoid panic attacks. Find three situations in your daily day and try out a couple of them. Please tell me the success stories so I can spread the word.
We have a story to tell all other Parkinson’s warriors.
If you find this intriguing, then search on YouTube, and you can find chocking videos searching for shell chock.
After the 1. world war, a lot of soldiers had tremors and were in terrible conditions shaking and Freezing. To me, it is Parkinson’s symptoms that equal fight, flight and freeze instinct behavior that matches anxiety and adrenalin tensions
So if you can see the above pattern and similarities with tremor and freeze and fight-flight and freeze instinct, you can start being active and help yourself.
I will in the next blog start telling about what you can do yourself
