I'm 42yrsold and was dx in 2013. Since being dx my symptoms have changed, and have been on several different types of medication, from pramipexole,nupro patch, and stalevo. My first symptoms were tremor in my left leg and was very slow movement. I now have cramp/curling in both feet, my head wobbles, stiffness in left side of body, poor balance.
I'm seeing my consultant next week, my PD nurse mentioned about apgo injection and deep brain stimulation. I'm not sure about them as not keen on trying new medications due to side effects and how long they are effective for.
I'm currently getting used to not being able to do what i once could, working out what makes best daytime tv and learning to switch of from my o.c.d with cleaning with 18yr old who doesn't think his bed needs changing or room needs polishing or hoovering and one yr old Springer who thinks Its fun to grab things she shouldn't have and chew them ie. tea towels, socks,phones and husband works long hours. If I feel down i turn on radio and sing even though some my say i can't.
