hello- my name is Bill and today I was officially diagnosed with "a-typycal Parkinson's disease" caused by anoxic event following a severe heart attack.
The recovery was slow and steady until about ten years until I started noticing subtle changes in my condition manifest by lack of coordination (when I tried to swim I sank like a stone), but.no sigfificant changed in balance, and I was walking fine. I have yet to develop any tremors.
My neurologist first started my an Sinemet 25/100 which was stellar for movement- the 2d dose I climed 3 flights of stairs, I stopped the Sinemet when I developed severe paranoia and wicked constipation, and take it from me that's a combination I would wish on no one.
A variety of of drugs followed none of which were effective. He's going to try low-dose sinemet now, then he's talking spinal tap to drain ecessive fluid.
We shall see,
Anyways, thanks for letting me vent,
