Are there any specialists in the UK to help/advise lady with spastic diplegia cerebral palsy.
I am wondering anyone could help with the following:
I am a lady who was born with Spastic Diplegia cerebral palsy. As a result of this I was told I had a retained moro reflex, which means I startle very easily, get very anxious, find it very hard to physically relax and tense up my body when I go to do something e.g hang the washing out. I am also finding it more difficult to stand and walk especially going downhill and crossing at pavements.
I also suffer from nocturnal bruxism which gives me TMJ symptoms of severe vertigo, headaches and jaw pain. As a result of the retained moro reflex I have also been diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder. I was on 10mg escitalapram, however that made me have very vivid dreams, so my doctor now wants me to try 150mg Trazodone.
Can a retained reflex be integrated with someone who has spastic diplegia cerebral palsy? or is the retained moro reflex just something that I have to live with?
Would Tizanidine (muscle relaxant) help me physically relax? Can it be taken alongside Trazodone?
Are there any specialists/neurologists in the UK that have experience of any of my conditions?
I would like some more information to take to my GP on Friday, so If you could advise on the above it would be really helpful.
