Hello everyone. I’m a 66year old retired engineer. I was diagnosed with PD after a Dat scan 3 years ago, although I lost my sense of taste 15 years ago. I suffer from right arm and right leg tremor. For the first year I didn’t take anything, since the second year I’ve been taking Co-benedopa (Madopar) initially 3x 50/12.5mg increasing to 4 x 100/25mg. To be honest I’ve never been able to correlate taking the drug with any reliable change in my tremor but I’ve done as I was advised so far. Now I also take 2-4mg IpinniaXL, again not sure if it helps. I’ve been eating a Keto diet for 3 years, lost 2 stone and feel healthier. I gave up smoking 5 months ago after 50 years, that reduced my tremor by 50%. I have just come out of Hospital after surgery for a burst Appendix, not fun and my tremor is back to where it was or slightly worse. I have a 9 inch wound that’s repairing, i’m hoping the tremor reduces once i’m healed.
This is the first time I’ve ever posted on a forum, so please excuse any errors.
