I was diagnosed over 11 years ago and it is only recently that I seem to have lost my 'get up and go'. I have recently been diagnosed with Acid Reflux and am finding the medication I take for this is interfering with the efficient management of my Parkinsons. My meds are not lasting from one dose to the next and also 'going off' during the night. It seems these two illnesses are both wanting to have the upper hand. Has anyone else found that meds for two quite different problems do not sit easy together? I will ask my Parkinsons Team for help, but am not sure if I want to change my meds as, until recently, they have suited me well. I am now not awake most of the night with Parkinsons. I am coughing myself silly with reflux. Think I prefer the Parkinsons!!!!
