As mentioned before, I have come off all prescribed meds. and am doing a 6 month experiment with different types of Mucuna Pruriens.......but I have a dilemma.
I have a new appointment at a new hospital on 4th. June, (having had too many negative issues at my previous one) and my 6 month experiment will just have finished. I need to go with a plan in mind.
Whilst I have felt more in control and clearer headed, over this period, my PD symptoms don't seem to have improved. In fact my walking and posture has got worse. But then, I ask myself, would that have happened anyway even if I'd been on conventional meds? Reading people's posts on the forum, I get the impression that the meds. don't always help much with certain people. They still talk about pain, frustration, slowness, difficulty walking, bad posture, freezing, dystonia etc.
My dilemma is whether to continue on the natural Levadopa, or try the conventional type to see if things improve and how will I know? I am worried about the side effects too, as Ropinirole played havoc with my eyesight. Has anyone had bad experiences with Levadopa?
I'm 67 in June and intend to be around for many years to come. I have no tremor, just very slow movement, bradykinesia.
