My name is Stewart & I live in Spain.
I was diagnosed just over 2 years ago and to be honest it never bothered me when i was told I had the disease.
It still doesn’t - as long as I keep taking the nedication!
The neurologist who examined me was excellent and after trials & tribulations with different medications, some of which had bad side effects. I am now on Stavelo which I take 6 times a day, along with Sinemet plus retard 1 & a half tablets just before going to bed.
The medication has helped me tremendously and so much so that ouwardly you would not notice anything wrong and I certainly don’t feel as if there is.
My memory has deteriorated though and my concentration has too. it is as if I stopped half way up the stairs wondering if I was going up or coming down only to remember I lived in a bungelow!
The medical service out here in Spain cannot be faulted, but their way of doing things sometimes seems a bit odd, but the system works.
