The second thing the neurologist told me after the bad news, he advised me not to go to the internet to read about Parkinson's.
I read about Parkinson's and also try different diet supplements e.g. Coconut oil, MCT oil, modified keto diet. I participate on this forum in my search to have the greatest understanding of P and to understand what, from experience of others, what my future may hold. I participate in the forum to learn from fellow Parkinson's (long) sufferers.
Online reading: a) Neurologist, stated no harm in postponing medicine; b) from Park site, it is preferable to start course of medicine as soon as one is diagnosed.
I am responsible for my own health and Parkinson's management. Therefore I read and participate in forum. I try this and that and watch how it effects my symptoms. I recently had a physical and blood tests through my Family Doctor. I asked him to help me manage my condition rather than me going to the neurologist. When I must start medication he will manage this for me. He said we will both learn.
Presently, I am in stage two Parkinson's. I find that my hope for relief sometimes makes decisions overly optimistic when it comes to diet, in particular (coconut oil).
