I don't know how to help my husband. He's 69, had PD for 5 years, on Sinimet and Mirapex and also has Lewey Body Disease. His walking has gotten really bad the last few weeks to the point he can hardly move even with his walker. Neuro refers him back to family dr. who puts him on steroids which doesnt help. Family dr. refers him back to Neuro. What the heck? Don't where to take him or what to do next. Tried massage therapy, fitness center, physical therapy, meds and nothing helping. Been to 4 different Neuro's and getting no where. Trying to get appt. with a specialist is like waiting to win the lottery. Is this what PD does and what to expect?? I knew about the freezing episodes but didn't realize legs would completely stop working. Any suggestions out there?? I love this site - it has been so helpful - thanks everyone for your responses.
