Pickz06, Wildrover and Roseycrunch welcome to the forum, have no fear there are plenty of people on here prepared to help you through the mine field that is PD and you will make plenty of friends. Myself ? I'm fairly new on here having been diagnosed in 2011 and gone through umpteen medications to cure my tremors(yes, I am greedy, I have two !!) before and after diagnosis and finally because none of them worked was put forward for Deep Brain Stimulation which I had done in 2013. This made a big difference bringing the Parkinsons tremor into line but not the Dystonic tremor(I originally was diagnosed with Essential tremor). The operation involves the drilling of two holes in the skull linked with a trench, wires are then put in and fed through your body to your chest where they are hooked up to a battery which stimulates the brain into producing dopamine. If you see the operation on tv you are lead to believe that the patient is awake but they are not, it is a date rape type drug that gives this illusion though I have come across one person, though drugged was awake during the whole process. Me, I was out for the count for seven hours though I was informed afterwards that a member of staff went back to the ward to fetch my medication for me to take, I have no recollection. The medication I am taking is 4 x 250mg Madopar which helps with the PD. Don't be afraid to ask anything on here, helps to talk. I went to see my area Parkinsons Nurse yesterday and she was very helpful and informative about all issues with my PD, everyone is different as it takes so many different forms.
