    • Estimados Usuarios, La mejor estrategia para mejorar los problemas de la comunicacion y baja voz causada por la enfermedad de parkinsons es la terapia del lenguaje como la LSVT ( por sus siglas en ingles, Lee Silverman voice therapy) y mas recientemente el programa Speak Out.  Es muy importante hablar con su doctor de las dificultades para comunicarse con otras personas ya que uso de terapia de voz y ajuste de medicamentos puede ayudar con el problema. Es importante recibir la terapia en centros especializados en ella y en la enfermedad de parkinson.    Saludos Adolfo Ramirez-Zamora MD
    • Thanks Gulfvet, I have joined the FB group. What a wonderful resource. Lot's of good info.  Thanks for your work on it. It's so important. I plan to contact my congressional representatives and senators about getting the VA to collect and release info re : # of vets with PD and where they served. Do you have the name and number of the legislation that compelled the VA to release the info? I just saw the list of places where the VA acknowledges there was exposure to chemicals that are presumptive re: PD. Quite a list. I need to carefully examine the EPA superfund lists of chemicals dumped at Edgewood. On my "to do" list!   
    • Thanks much all.  Wrkjnky13 ...I sent you a message reference the pilot.  Will probably try and give it a shot at applying for SSD.    DB
    • Good morning, NCFred. Since you were so recently diagnosed and are still finding the best medication dose and schedule, your morning exhaustion could be part of that process. You might want to have a sleep study done to make sure you are getting enough deep REM sleep. I was surprised to discover that I wasn't breathing deeply enough to oxygenate my blood during sleep, which led to daytime sluggishness and sleepiness. Blessings as you navigate your way along the PD path. Dianne    
    • Hi Fred, Are you getting enough sleep?  If not, it might take extra dopamine to get you going.  Before I started Trazadone (which has been a miracle drug for me to help with sleep) the mornings were really rough.  I'm still slow for the first couple of hours after awakening - it seems like that first dose just takes a little longer.  Gardener
