Excrcise is a vry important part of treatment. I walk 45 min a day, I stretch daily too. Day 1, high intensity interval training, day 2, weights, day 3 karate and repeat. The more I move the better I feel.
Norman Dx 04/2013 at Age 56, No meds for 1yr. Used Sinemet 100/25 5 t/d 1 1/2 tab at 6:00, 1 tab at 11:00, 1 1/2 at 16:00, and 1 tab close to midnight. After 1 yr on Sinemet my neurologist put me on 10 mg of Selegiline. Another good move on his part, I feel better overall. Main symptoms: Left side tremors, bradykinesia, fine motor skills problems, apathy, anxiety, swallowing problems. Sinemet lifted the gloom and reduced all my symptoms, small tremors persist. Intolerance to stress persists.
After one yr on Sinemet, dyskinesia started in the form of head bobbing and squirming. Stopped Sinemet and Selegiline on May 18th 2016 to begin treatment with Mucuna Pruriens. Dyskinesia disappeared 4 days later. Progressively increasing dosage, now taking 10 g a day.
