Hello Fellow PDers, My name is Philip Proven and I was diagnosed with idiopathic PD five years ago. I am 84 and retired. I know we all have different symptoms and the only thing that is certain that we are all progressive sufferers of PD. I love the term “ PD is a boutique disease” some boutique! I have had a mild ish form of the disease but the inevitable progression, i think is now making its self felt. I had a brisk shortish walk this afternoon and all was lovely ( i live in rural Wiltshire) and have splendid views and a refreshing environment.
However, this evening I suddenly went into an “off “ period which alarmed me somewhat. I Amjust removing from a nasty infection of a pace maker and am finishing a long course of antibiotic (flucloxicillin ) and for the the first time I took my Sastravi and antibiotic at the same time. The attack of muscle spasm and stiffness came on 2 hrs after injection of the two drugs. Anybody out there in PD land have had a similar experience. Let me know please. Not too concerned as tomorrow is another day to resume the battle on this pesky scourge . Best wishes to all
