More Symptoms of PDS

Agoraphobia, claustrophobia, space perception difficulties, false sensation of movement.

Consequences in everyday life:

Patients don´t like shopping in large commercial areas or using elevators.

They would rather use roads than highways to drive to their destinations (which seems a paradox).

They don't feel comfortable crossing large squares if there is not a monument in its center.

They show difficulties while parking their cars.

They have a false sensation of rearing movement while in stopped cars (despite no movement of other cars next to them).

Patients grind their teeth during sleep. This is due to a loss of control of the muscles of the mouth. The brain has the wrong information and believes the muscles are relaxed in excess. It then sends a neurological output to contract them. Some patients can´t open their mouth properly and have problems eating solid food.


PDS Symptoms are the direct consequency of a dysfunction of the proprioceptive system.
