I was originally diagnosed 3 years ago but rightly or wrongly I decided to soldier on without medication. I went to see another neurologist, who was brilliant, and he advised that it was time to start on Sinemet. half a tablet three times a day for the first week then one tablet three times a day (125 mgs). This is my current dose, although he advised to go on to one and a half tablets if things don't improve.
I have noticed a significant difference in my arms and upper body but my legs have become so much worse. They feel cold, achy and so heavy that I can hardly walk around the house and now need help to turn around has anyone else experienced this. I really need some advice.
