I was first formally diagnosed back 23 Nov 2020, after being referred to Addenbrookes from N&N hosp in Norwich. although i think i may had “parky” for some 12 months prior to the formal diagnosis. MRI’s and X-rays show nothing
I am 67 been retired for some 7 yrs, i appear to have the “frozen gait” variety, which I find very frustrating. I have had a few falls where I’m out thinking my feet….der,
Although I was desk bound for the large part of my career (oil & gas new build platform Contract management), I have been always been very active on refurbishment of properties
We sent 2 years gutting and rebuilding my bungalow, for the future after i started retirement…….I had just taken up golf, so now i find the whole thing very debilitating, as i find “getting going’ a problem.
My wife is so good at making me slow down and think first, never a trait i was good at !!!
I have been on madopar from 65mmgs x 3 to 250mmgs x 3 per day, currently 125mmmg x 3 a day and I am currently awaiting a call back form Addenbrookes to see where i go from here as Madopar does not seem to have much of an effect
I think things are starting to move forward shortly, so this is just an “hi, I’m here type intro”
