  • hi andy ,

    thanks for your thoughts and message xxxx

  • i'm sorry shasha, why are you doing a drug holiday? I'm asking because I had a hernia operation and was forced to be drug free for a few days. I had NO PAIN! But couldn't stand up ! I asked my doctor if I could have a drug holiday and he said no. ???

  • hi pat ,

    i am having a drug holiday as since i was dx in in 2010 I Hve had little or no response to any of the many drugs i have been given - so it was suggested that i come off everything and then start again - it may be i have PSP or MSA which as you are no doubt aware means that dopamine and all the usual drugs given for PD have no effect - my neuro though is convinced i do have PD albeit a type that has a resistance to the usual drugs ... i dont know why your dr said no though !! - ps i am not looking forward to the experience though as i do get relief from pain with my modopar and sinemet ...

  • hi sha

  • Good luck Sha. I'll be thinking about and praying for both you and Fred.

    Hugs, Terri

  • thank you so much terri - love and hugs to you and tommy

  • Sharon,

    You brave girl!! I'm so pleased you're finally being properly assessed. Maybe France has it's advantages after all. I'm not sure whether a correct PD dx is all that I hoped it would be almost 9 yrs on. Much of that time treatment & condition as you know OK but recently almost constant pain, RLS etc & I've just started to freeze. If vets can keep animals free from pain why can't/won't doctors do this for us? Have a good rest in hospital, get a proper dx & come to visit Marilyn so I can meet you in person. Love & a host of hugs, Angela.

  • thanks so much angie for your good wishes - i am sorry though to hear that you are in pain - and to freeze too - i have been doing that for a year or more but thank the vets - no real bad pain -

    love and hugs sha - we have been invited to stay with marl but she lives in a house with stairs and i am not good on stairs ....
