I was 33 yrs when I was diagnosis with the Beast . In 2007 I was laid off for 2 yrs I was looking for work and for 2yrs my parkinsons got worse my doctor suggested that I go on SS disability . I was up to 2 pills of L- Dopa every 2hours and not lasting as long . That's when I decided to look in clinical trials because I didn't want DBS . And found a trial that uses gene therapy this was 2009 and was lucky to get chosen . Went to Boston to have it done had 2 holes drilled in my head and had it done. But because this was a double blinded trial there was chance that I would get it . After that they said it will take six months to see any impovement . During that time nothing ! Then in June 2010 got the call that I didn't get the gene therapy . I went back in september 2011 to get the real treatment now I have to wait 6 months to see.
I will write again to post my results .
