Just wondered if anyone can recommend a neurologist for us to take my dad to see. He's been diagnosed with "some signs of parkinsons" about ten years ago now.
The issue we have is he goes from sitting chatting, eating his lunch himself sensibly and chatting about current affairs, to a zombie type state where he talks about growing 3rd arms, teeth in his for head, ball bearings under his skin and many other trippy type things.
It's the bizarrest change in a person you could ever see and it just doesn't seem right. If it's his brain then why does it follow the same pattern every day and why does he fluctuate so much between a poorly relatively normal human being to one with severe mental illness. I'm guessing this may be normal, but it doesn't feel like it to us.
Have asked his Dr for a review and to see a neurologist but don't seem to be getting anywhere fast, and to date the reviews just keep getting done by Parkinsons people with the same one track answers 'we'll he has got parkinsons you know'.
Tragically it just feels like giving him his medicine is poisoning him so would like to get a full review done by someone who is aware of the possible psp situation and potential clashes /side effects of taking the cocktail of pills he's on, and we're not convinced are helping. My mum is happy to pay for a private consultation but is under the impression there are not many sbout that may be able to help us.
Does anyone know where we should be headed and who to see?
As always thanks in advance for any input.
Best to all.
