He also has mitral valve prolapse and has issues with his kidneys and liver which I think is another reason he doesn't want to try any medications for his PD, afraid of it making things worse.....
UGH.... I try to reason with him logically b/c it's like talking to a Vulcan sometimes and he usually finds a way to disagree with me.......

From all I've been reading it looks like Sinemet has less side affects than other medications but still helps. He is really pessimistic about taking anything for the PD. And I would hate to have to go behind his back and say something to his boss but it may come to that point. We have a friend who works with him, maybe I can ask him to say something, lol..... I think it's just a matter of time. He told me after that bad episode he doesn't know how much longer he can keep it up, keep working... He's worked hard his whole life though and can't even imagine not working so I think that's making it hard on him to decide what to do.
I love my DH very much and will always be there for him but this whole thing is stressing me out.

Everyone is different I hear people saying the agonists are great. They made me sick at the beginning and grumpy! The patch so far seems a lot better I hope it pans outs because I worry about using up the sinemet.

Sorry for the absence, I've been having back issues so have either been resting or putting my energy and focus into housework.
OH, it may be a while before it's needed but I did order one of those free hospital kits found on this site. It came last week. DH actually looked at everything and thanked me for it. That was a shocker, lol.

Hello everyone. Sorry I've been MIA. Have had a lot going on but that's nothing new, lol. I do have an update though!!! Hubby's condition has "progressed", enough to the point that his boss has TOLD him to see doctor for his PD. SO, during a recent visit to our doctor (we've been sick), hubby mentioned his PD and needing a referral to a neuro. He now has an appointment for Friday, the 15th. I honestly don't know his experience with PD, I'm just glad my hubby is finally taking that step. It's a big one and he's avoided it long enough. His legs haven't been giving him any problems, somehow he has the ability to adapt, but his fingers and hands have been curling up and fingers getting stiff.... It has really affected his work. Many have seen his episodes, I know he's embarrassed. If he's with someone and it happens he just tells them he has to wait a moment, usually ends up explaining it. The friend he works with, I don't know, it's like at first he didn't believe hubby had it but then he's seen the symptoms but he's wishy-washy, lol.... Anyways.... Sorry for the babbling..... I've started homeschooling our kids so I may not be on often but I'll be sure to update after hubby sees the neurologist. Hope you all are doing well, under the circumstances.

Good luck with the visit to the neurologist on the 15th. I'm impressed with you homeschooling your children on top of everything else.
