Hi

I am a new member to the forum. My father father was diagnosed with PD 6yrs ago at the age of 49 and is in terrible pain with a new medication he is taking. He has suffered a stroke some years ago and thus makes him very sensitive to PD meds. Has anyone else experienced this before or had a stroke previous to PD diagnosis?

Look forward to hearing from you x

Hi Noodle81...........and welcome to the forum......i am sorry to hear about your Father and the suffering he is going through, i am sure he must have spoken to his PD nurse regarding the amount of pain he is having? I have no knowledge of a stroke before PD but i am sure that there will be someone here that will be able  to help you and give you reassurance. You will get plenty of support from our members and i hope your Dad soon finds some help with this.

Keep posting and my warmest wishes to you

Hi Noodle81

I suffered a mini stroke just prior to finding out I had PD - this was known as a bleed to the brain - I feel sure that had some connection with my diagnosis. In fact I thought the initial symptoms were that of a stroke - shaking of left hand drag on left leg - I thought they had got my PD diagnosis wrong. It came as a shock. But luckily I have had no problems with the medication I am on Ropinirole 6mg per day.

Hope your dad is soon sorted out with some meds that suit him because everyone is different, I am sure the PD nurse or your dads consultant can help him out, or you can phone the help line at the top of the page for some advice.

 

Regards Sheila
