I've been married to my beautiful wife and high school sweetheart for 45 years. Our world fell apart recently when she was diagnosed with Parkinson's. At first was the falls, so we went to a ear nose throat "specialist" who after running several test determined it was the "rocks" in her inner ear that was causing the problem. After a few sessions with a therapist, I suggested that I suspected something else was wrong, so back to Primary Physician, who referred us to a neurologist who after eeg "that was normal" he prescribed lexadopa and diagnosed "a nonfluent agrammatic form of frontotemporal dementia versus perhaps an atypical of Alzheimer's disease." which only confused the issue more. When we decide the medication was not helping the balance issue we met with the neurologist and his response was "There nothing I can do, I am referring you to a behavioral neurologist. Shortly after we decided to see different neurologist 150 miles from our home, his diagnosis "PARKINSON'S" his prescription carbidopa-levodopa. Carbidopa-levodopa, side effects, scary!! Our world is falling apart, my beautiful lady, I her knight in shining armor can't do a thing against this beast only watch as it eats away her being. Just about this time a news report about " Cycling on stationary bikes may benefit people with Parkinson's disease, especially if they cycle hard and fast. " HOPE!!! So we decide on physical therapy before introducing "THE DREDDED DRUG" and another and another and another, different name same snake oil. Long story short "NO CURE, NO ANSWER. On a sinking ship and the best that can be done is a bucket and a prayer, I'm sticking with the prayer.
