My name is John and I am originally from the Green Isle. Ireland now living in the states. I was diagnosed with PD this yr, and was re-confirmed the other Day by Dr. Okun he is wonderful.. I am new to the forums, my visit with Dr. Okun was wonderful first thing he said that I was undermedicated, so he fixed that right away. My tremor is in my right hand, I already have big time balance issues, and walking sleep is horrible he gave me some thing for that too,
I take 2.5 Carbidopa/Levodopa 25/100 every 4 hrs and now 1mg Azilect.. So I am hoping this makes things easier. I hope that I can meet some new friends on here, I have an Orlando Young Parkinson's Page on FB we here in Central Fl are many but not too many will want to meet up, the Support group I attend the youngest there is 56, I just turned 40 last month. This is something that I look at as a obstacle and I stay positive as much as I can. I have been looking for a wristband similiar to the Breast cancer ones for Parkinson's but I can not find any, Does and know of one out there.
Well That's all for now
