Just had my 83rd birthday,and saw my neurologist on Monday. He was delighted with my progress on Sinamet plus (since I was diagnosed in January this year). The tremor has virtually disappeared and my walking is better. He has now prescribed Rasagiline as well - I will be interested to see what difference it makes.
I still go the gym twice a week, and work with a personal trainer for 30 mins. then have 30 mins massage. I exercise on a recumbent bike and do a few of the PD Warrior exercises. I also see a physio every week - alternate weeks it is a physio with neuro training and she gives me special exercises. I try to do all these exercises every day, but don’t always manage it. Even at my age I am sure that it is worth making the effort to do the exercises, although it can be hard at times.
I have mentioned before that I lost my driving licence after a stroke. I got it back just before my birthday and am now happy driving again.
All in all, life is great, I feel wonderful, and am happy with the way things are going. I am living with PD, but rt hasn’t taken over - very little has changed and life is GOOD.
Keep moving and try to be positive - I am sure it helps. Currently I can’t stop smiling. Long may it last.
Best wishes to everybody.
