Hi to all the forum Members, i am new to the forum.
My Stepfather who is a young 80yr old had a CT Scan 3 yrs ago for
Parkinson as he has had a type of tremor in arm for many years .
The Scan did find a lower amount of Dopermine in the brain
and the Consultant said it was under the umbrella of Parkinsons
but not actually conclusive of Parkinsons but the Consultant did
want him to take the very strong medication.He took it for a couple of days and
became like a zombie, no energy depressed and not very active
and also he would of had to given up driving, and is a good driver.
I decided to contact the Consultant who agreed to him stop taking the medication.
I wanted to ask ,it's now 3 yrs on and he still has the tremor but no gait in walking
but i have noticed behaviour has become obsessive with cleaning and rigid routine hoovering and annoyed if he cant stick to his routine is this related the Consultants findings of dopermine deficit or in a type of Parkinsons,
Or just old age?He certainly has done better not taking the medication.
Just a thought would this be anything to do with less dopermine in the brain
Help on this would be very helpful.
