Hi everyone. My mom in law was diagnosed about 2 months ago, and were surprised to see she responded to carbidopa/levodopa. However, the benefits seem to have stopped working. She now has a slight hand tremor (brand new), and is leaning significantly to the left. Almost so much that sitting in a chair becomes laying in the chair. Her mood swings are really hard to deal with. Both my husband and I were previously in abusive relationships, and get triggered by her yelling at us. No one seems to understand anything (doctors and medical staff), so I'm forced to look through as much info as I can find on this disease. It's all so tiring.
