My apologies Blossomdeary, DBS is Deep Brain Stimulation which controls the Parkinsons tremor. Two holes are drilled into the skull with a small trench joining them, wires are then put in and fed down to a battery in the chest which tells the Brain to produce Dopamine. My Parkinsons affects the right hand side of my body, my side effects are memory loss at times in that things I would have normally remembered instantly take a little longer to come back. I have balance issues in confined spaces whereby I am likely to fall, I also walk funny, like i'm drunk !! Also, I have a Dystonic tremor which has been with me since I was a teen meaning that where I have to concentrate very hard on doing something I get a little wobble on, eating is a problem as my hands shake especially in the company of strangers, brushing my teeth I use two hands to achieve this and I no longer wet shave due to carving chunks out of my face so use an electric shaver. The medication i'm on is Madopar of which I am on 4 x 250mg per day and this does help me. It is eviident that your husband needs to get off the Requip as soon as possible for your sake as much as his and you should get him an appointment to see his Neurologist to explain the problems you are having. They should be able to help.
