My father is in his early 60's and has had PD for a longggg time. Like over 20 years. He has been taking Parcopa for about 2 years and now that is all he takes for his parkinson's. He also takes clonazeapam, imimpramine, tamazeapam, welbutrin time released and lisinipril HCTZ. He shakes so much more and his doctor's just don't seem to care. They are starting to ignore us and I am in tears watching him shake like this. Poor daddy:(
I am so sorry to hear that your father has Parkinson's Felicia. So do I. I have many unanswered questions concerning the disease. I am 56 years old, but I was diagnosed with this three years ago. I have felt like there has been something wrong with me neurologically for years and years. Who knows how many years I actually have had it! It would not be as likely to be diagnosed in a young person.
My feet swell. I think that is due to the Parkinsons's, or the medication that I am on for the Parkinson's. I have pain and stiffness all through my whole body, I don't know what that's all about. You're right too. The Doctors don't seem to care. Like they prescribe pain pills topeople, without knowing what the cause of the disease is. Any new ideas out there concereining Parkinson's
