I joined this forum many years ago, but haven't been here for quite a while. I was diagnosed age 42 and am now 50. I take sinemet plus to control my pd symptoms which are mainly rigidity, slow movement, and seemingly loss of physical and mental dexterity. I also take sertraline for depression and HRT to control hot flushes. I work part time and have grown up children and grandchildren. I am currently struggling with a mixture of symptoms and side effects (it's hard to know which is which!), and am hoping to find a few answers here, as well as just generally meeting others with this frustrating condition!
