I’m David aged 41 just diagnosed with Parkinson’s and really really struggling to cope with the news at such a young age.
My motor problems are minimal at present, just slowness, stiff left shoulder and occasional tremor in my left thumb.
However my non motor symptoms are debilitating. Been in major depression anxiety and anhedonia for 3 years and now totally apathetic, constantly in a state of brain fog and fatigue ridden. Smell is foul and my thoughts are very dark. Lost my job and my world is very small now.
Been through lots of antidepressants but currently not on anything. Neurologist wants me to start low dose sinemet but I’m very anxious about side effects and doubt it will help with non-motor symptoms.
Can anyone offer me hope?
Might sinimet positively effect non-motor symptoms?
I’ve started HDT B1
Anyone had any success with the coronet red light therapy?
Feeling desperately devoid of hope
