I just turned on my browser, which opens to the NPF Forum new content page. It has tons of ads and annoying pop-ups, even whole ad pages that seem to open without any action on my part when moving from a post back to the new content page! It is extremely distracting, and it was not this way yesterday.


Certain words within the posts are double underlined in green, and these lead to more ads.


I have checked the other pages on my browser and this is not happening there. Is this permanent or some sort of bug? I, for one, vote NOT to have ads!


I would appreciate a response.  Thank you.

I am not a human being trying to have a spiritual experience; I am a spiritual being having a (sometimes difficult) human experience.


First symptoms: right-hand tremor, constipation and restless arms 1978 (age 25). Depression and anxiety (non-motor symptoms) began in 1989 and worsened through the years. Last inpatient episode June 2013.


Diagnosed December 2010 by a regular neurologist (age 57). After negative reactions to Requip, Mirapex and selegiline began Sinemet 25/100 3x/day. First MDS visit in Houston in February of 2011 was inconclusive. Second MDS visit at Baylor Fort Worth in May/June 2011 diagnosis changed to Parkinsonism, Sinemet stopped. Third MDS visit in August 2011 in WA State: received a confirmed diagnosis of idiopathic PD which had started on the right side and had now crossed to the left side as well. Restarted on Sinemet 25/100 4x/day. A short trial of Amantadine caused audio hallucinations in September 2011.


Current medications at age 63: Duopa gel via PEG-J tube, 6ml loading dose; continuous dose 2 ml.  Trazodone 150 mg at bedtime, Fluvoxamine 300 mg at bedtime. Clonazepam 0.5 mg morning and afternoon, 1 mg at bedtime. Vit D3 2x/day, Calcium Carbonate Susp. 5 cc daily, Baclofen 10 mg 3x/day, Flonase two sprays 2x/day, Calcitonin-Salmon nasal spray once daily (for osteoporosis). Gel eye drops as needed throughout the day, Restasis Eye drops 2x/day, Nighttime eye ointment at bedtime. 02 2L per nasal cannula while asleep. Walker, electric wheelchair, moist and soft or pureed foods and 135 caregiver hours per month keep me moving.

can you please supply a screenshot of what you are seeing and send it to forumadmin@parkinson.org ?


As Island Woman previously stated, I would definitely run a malware and antivirus scan of your computer.


Thank you
