  • I found myself being increasingly rooted to the spot, falling, and then along came sinemet, 62.5m, which loosened my limbs, freed my feet and I was walking briskly again. My facial expression has become a look, as opposed to a glare, and yes, night time activity has improved because my body movement has. Tiredness is still a factor but not on the same scale as before, my timing when playing my guitar or keyboard is almost back.

  • Hi ....thank you for your comment and I can understand your 'wow' from what you have said.

    I live in the UK and see my neurologist every 6 months and my PD nurse in between these times do you think this close monitoring has an impact I think it may.

    Are you in UK ? I find it quite startling the efforts other people have to go to for meds and the cost.
