I'm new to this forum so forgive me if I get some of the lingo wrong!!
My mum was diagnosed with Parkinsons last year, she doesnt have the shake but she has trouble moving, especially her right arm and legs. She has been on a couple of different types of medication which unfortunately havent given her the relief from her symptons that we expected.
She went back to the hospital for a check up this week and was told she may be Ldopamine intolerant, so they have double her dosage for a few months but if this doesnt have any effect she will come off the medication completely as it obviously isnt working.
I am concerned about what this will mean for her, I understand this will not have any effect on the rate of progression of the disease but cant help but think without the medication she may be in a worse way sooner.
Is anyone else in this position or have any advice for me or her?
I would be happy to hear any comments as I dont really know who else to turn to for advice on this.
