About Me

Male, Age 62,  DIagnosed  PD April 2013, DatScan + Symptoms

Major symptoms...right  leg/foot gait & shuffle when tired, right hand resting tremor, no right arm swing when walking, sloppy hand writing in script, executive function degradations, anxiety/apathy.

Meds start June 2014   Now on  Sinemet 25/100  3x/Day,  Requip 6mg ER 1X/Day   

Slow Progression

Diagnosed OSA July 2014  Use CPAP with beneficial results. 

Have been through LSVT LOUD Speech Therapy Program 

No family history of PD but do have some history with Alzheimers

 

 

Symptoms now prevent further pursuit of my life long career (pilot).  Time for a third act.  Savoring life’s opportunities, travel (while I can), and most important family & grandchildren.  With slow progression, I am thankful to be able to enjoy newly reordered "priorities".
