HI all. Well we're 2 weeks in from diagnosis and I have my first question for the group. Background - he (boyfriend - 42) sought treatment because his right (dominant) shoulder had become stiff, no swinging and he was having dexterity problems with things like tying his shoes, shaving, etc. as well as general slowness. Ended up at a neurologist who prescribed an increasing dose of generic Sinemet starting with a 1/2 pill (25/100) once a day and increasing a half pill a day to eventually 2 pills 4x day. He's still not at full strength (I believe yesterday he did 1.5 pills 4x). We were together over the weekend and I noticed that his left hand now pulses/twitches/flicks whatever you want to call it when he's not thinking about it. So when I call his attention to it and he looks at his hand it stops (and I look like an A-hole ). He doesn't got back to his neurologist for 6 weeks. Is this normal/common (I know nothing is normal anymore)/expected or should he call the neurologist for re-evaluation of dosing? I know what I think but trying not to 'muddy the waters' with my opinions or thoughts. Please let me know your experiences and any advice as to how to communicate this to the doctor (or office personnel). Thanks in advance. [p.s. he says that he has noticed some improvement on dexterity with his hand and maybe some loosening in his shoulder, I think he might be a little faster that one is hard to judge]. One more important piece...the twitching seems much less first thing in the morning (before meds), during the day while on meds nearly constant if he's not doing something with his hand.
