Hello, I am still having a terrible time trying to sort out my mother's medication. I managed to get a private appointment with her neurologist on Friday and he announced he didn't think she had Parkinson's ! She has been treated for Parkinson's for the last 8 years approximately but only really suffering in the last year. He came to this conclusion because she does not have any rigidity and I showed him a video of her as she suddenly declines and the medication wears off. This has just started to happen dramatically. She goes extremely weak and can barely speak on a couple of occasions she says everything has gone black and it's like she's going to lose consciousness.
I've been thinking about it and I think she does have Parkinson's but has been so undermedicated for so long because she does not display any rigidity or freezing but suddenly she is way behind on what she needs for her brain.
Does anyone have Parkinson's without rigidity ?? I am not in a good place trying to care for her and I'm deteriorating badly myself I really need some help somehow.
