My husband seems to be getting weaker and having more issues on the Levadopa/carbidopa that he was put on immediately by his neurologist. His movements are slower he complains that he is not sleeping at night, that would be because he sits on the sofa sleeping during the day. The OT came yesterday and told him no more than a 1/2 nap during the day. He claims he didn't sleep at all last night and is completely exhausted today. Have read about Rasagline. Is anyone taking it? Also read that a high protein diet will cure him. Since I am leary about abut either options I don't know how to help him. His regular neurologist is sending him to another one who specializes in movement disorders but she can't see him until May. Does that mean that he doesn't have Parkinsons itself but what he calls Parkinsonism. What is the difference if any? He also does not have any tremors but only the movement issues. Any input would be appreciated.
