Writing this for my mum who has advanced parkinsons. How do you cope with all the fainting? I
think the doctora have made as many ‘tweaks/ balancing’ with my mum’s medication as they can now and everything seems like a trade-off in terms of managing symptoms.
My mum faints many times a day now. It can be at different times- no set pattern. My dad eases her down to the floor and puts her on her knees, then she will try to have a glass of water. Although she doesn’t drink as much as she perhaps should.
I have heard about having more salt, fizzy drinks, orange juice. What practical things do you do when this happens to you? My mum is trying to hang on for as long as she can before she always goes in a wheelchair. It’s really hard for her because she wants to try and keep the little mobility she has. She is 76. Thanks in advance
