    Alcohol

    Before I started any symptoms one of my pleasures used to be a G&T, now I find i can no longer drink it as after a couple of sips i start feeling shaky. Has anyone else experienced this?

    I have not experienced that but I have found that as my body mass has declined that my tolerance for alcohol is only a fraction of what it used to be. Basically I’m just a cheap date nowadays 😅

        Could also be some medication you are on?

          I'm not on medication yet following a foul up between my neurosurgeon and hospital pharmacy I'm waiting to receive my prescription for over a week now.

            After just a few sips Carl - is it lots and lots of G and not a lot of T? Have you tried other alcohols, in the name of research, of course 😉

            And when you say "shaky", does that mean you feel tipsy? xx

              Is there any other way than lots of G a touch of T and loads of ice? Tried vodka and that made me sick so in self-preservation I've decided to not partake for a while. I do think the weight loss has a lot to do with it I've lost 3st.

                I told the mnd nurse that Stephen liked a glass of wine with his meal and I liked a Guinness. She suggested it was better for Stephen to have the Guinness so it might be worth a try. He certainly enjoyed it.
                when i can think of something profound i will update this.

                  Carl You might want to try the new alcohol free gins - I tried them at a gin festival and they were pretty good.

                    Cinderella, alcohol free gin and a ladies bedroom toy with no batteries have one thing in common. They both fill you up but without any buzz {i hope this is polite language on here}
