After spending a week in the hospital because my darling husband could not get out of bed unassisted and slid to the floor. Could not lift himself up and I am not strong enough to help him. Called 911 and they picked him up and tried to convince him to go to the hospital. He refused. This goes back about a week and a half. Once he is lifted up he can walk with a walker. The second time it happened, same day I told him no choice. After 9 hours in the ER he was diagnosed with dehydration and renal failure and admitted. His heart issues thank goodness remained stable, all tests came back negative, renal failure responded to normal with hydration. Any test they gave him, communication was impossible, have asked for his hospital records, they kept him for a week and since he is very weak, cannot get out of bed himself still they sent him to a rehab facility with the recomention that he needs to get strong enough to go home with my assistance. He is getting physical therapy and that's about all he needs. Oh yes, I know I said this before he is 77 and I am 76. Yes he is on Sinemet, if I spelled that right, along with his blood pressure meds. They took him off Amiodarone at the hospital last week to see if that is causing it but it doesn't seems to have made any difference. Is extreme weakness park of this horrible disease? I am getting no where fast. So frustrated and no answers since he suddenly got it after a stay in the hospital to treat AFIB and was put on the Amiodarone. Hospital Dtr said Parkinsons and that is it.
