    • Realy if you have  pd all medical science has to offer is symptomatic relief it will become clear if you a pd or not that being said, medical science is very good at that syptommatic relief (although drugs can have side effects) what I'm suggesting is consider yourself a person with stmptoms forget about the labels  
    • I'm now on a vsmall dose of rytalin insurance wouldn't pay 4 nuvigl I don't feel drugged but I often get through the day and say "whatdouknow I wasn't tired at all today" hopefull it will last
    • Indeed it is lonely and life changing. I miss my husbands company very much, he is in bed most days, the exhaustion giving him no choice but to sleep. He also has Vascular dementia, and severe Gasteoparesis. When he is awake and alert I take advantage of it. I will post tips as I find out thru trial and error what works. I appreciate you all, the support really helps.
    •   I of course don't know do you have a neurologist you trust and has known both of you a while also is he taking meds
    • Caregiving is a challenging and lonely job—a job most of us don’t have training for or even experience with.  As a result, we find our way through determination and inventiveness.  If anyone has helpful tips to pass along, I would be ever so grateful.
