  1. Trying Sinemet

    C/L reduces my tremor, relaxes my muscles, eliminates my anxiety, keeps me from chocking on my saliva when I nap. Pretty much makes me feel better.
  2. Got my 23andme results

    I used the site below to get additional information based on my 23 and Me data. It doesn't cost much and you get your reports back in minutes. https://promethease.com/
  3. I see a neurologist every 12 months and any time in between visits if there is a problem with my meds.
  4. Early Symptoms

    I never really noticed any slowness prior to my diagnosis. Tremor, stiffness, foot spasms, swallowing issues, and a little shuffling of the feet were my symptoms.
  5. Tremors only -- could it be YOPD?

    Early tremors in both hands and legs do not sound like PD or MS to me. I have PD and my wife has MS and neither of us have experienced those symptoms before.
  6. What drugs? supplements like inisine?

    Your doctor may have wanted to try you on an agonist rather than Azilect. Those do have warnings for sudden sleep issues.
  7. maybe PD?

    I am not aware of any recent studies that show that you end up worse after taking meds. The meds stay the same, but those of us with PD continue to loose dopamine cells. It would be great if you don't need meds, but don't be afraid to take them. They are life changing for many.
  8. alcohol and tremors

    My tremor usually really calms down after about 3 beers.

  10. Great Club

    You don't have to quit all protein when taking levadopa. Just don't eat a burger an hour before taking your meds. Take your Levodopa, wait at least 30 minutes and then eat the protein. It is also better to eat smaller meals. Big meals (and I mean the big holiday meals) don't seem to clear enough before the next dose.
  11. Coffee, tea or alcohol?

    I drink about 4 cups of strong coffee every day and have an occasional beer or mixed drink. Never have any problem unless the drink turns into 7 or 8. Then the next day is a little rough.
  12. Welcome to the club

    I second adams' comments.
  13. Promising trial from Down Under

    Bad news from the clinical trial. This one failed. https://stockhead.com.au/columnists/whats-next-living-cell-failed-clinical-trial/ Chairman’s Address to the 2017 Annual General Meeting We are all extremely disappointed that the outcome of the Phase IIb trial of NTCELL® for Parkinson’s disease has not shown a statistically significant difference between the patients who received NTCELL and those who had sham surgery. I will talk about what those results mean for the future of the company in more depth shortly, but to set those in context, first I’d like to highlight some of the activities from the past 12 months. http://www.lctglobal.com/news/asx-announcements
  14. Summer adventure season starting

    Stump started this thread discussing fishing, kayaking, and hunting. Here's a thought! How about at the first inkling that you see something you don't like, stop reading and move on to the next post. What is wrong with people in today's society that thinks that everyone else should change to suit them? People post stuff online every day that I don't agree with. If I don't like it, I don't read it. Stump, keep on posting. I don't hunt much anymore, but I love eating game that my sister and niece bring home. They both got 8 point whitetails this weekend.
