Hello Rebekah8 It certainly sounds as if you have PD everyone is of course different but reading your post I have in my recent past suffered all of the unpleasant horrible effects you mention. I have been fortunate in my battle with
BLACKHEART "My description" to have the latest weapon on the market, Duodopa,it
has worked a miracle for me, I can walk talk think clearly no tremor no short little steps I have recovered so many aspects of my life which I thought were gone
forever, it will give me a much better quality of life , at this time it does need a bit fine tuning, and I do have problems through the night with mild PD symptoms but as I say it does need a bit of adjustment to optimize the device and
as time goes by no doubt the manufacturers will improve and refine the product in much the same way as the mobile phone has advanced over the years, I only wish every one afflicted with parky could have DD it is very costly and is not a cure but in the short term I have been given my life back and I intend to live it to the full, speak to your Consultant about DD the savings made on conventional drugs
can offset the cost of DD to certain extent, you may be eligible I should tell you it requires a operation , if you go on the Parkinsons Website and type in Duodopa you will find out all you need to know, Good Luck.
