We started my mum on mannitol, she has taken no more than 2 tsp per day but we are finding that her symptoms appear exacerbated after taking it. It made her left arm that she struggled with unusable and extremely painful but after some massage and scanar it seemed to release and has consequently felt better. She has taken a few days break and re-tried a couple of times all with worsening of various symptoms (dizziness, speech) even with only half a teaspoon.
What are others experiences, thoughts? Do you need to get worse to get better? Note regular parkinson's meds have had no effect.
