Husbands recent diagnosis


#1

My husband has recently been diagnosed after 4/5 years of wondering what was happening to him. He’s been on the medication a few months now and improved a lot initially, however over the last few weeks he really seems to be regressing again, becoming very confused and anxious. I’m really struggling to cope at the moment and just wondered if this was normal .

The diagnosis takes a while to come to terms with on both sides. The meds take a little while to kick in and at first they may need ‘tweaking’ a little bit to adjust with the PWP. If you are really worried then if you have a PD nurse to contact then perhaps you can speak to her, or failing that you can contact the Parkinsons helpline (number at top of page) they have a great back up team with good advice.

All the best - Sheila
