Hope everyone is doing well. Well, I was expecting this and it happened... I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. My MRI was clear, but the Neuro said he expected that. He just wanted to rule out stroke, tumor, etc. He diagnosed me with Parkinson's, upped my Requip to 2mg per day with Extended Release tablet, and referred me for physical therapy for 3 times per week for 1 month. My pharmacy said the insurance company has to approve the XR tablet, and I have not obtained that approval yet. I also attended my first yUHr Move class at the local Hospital Healthplex. This class is Tuesdays & Thursdays and is provided FREE courtesy of Movers & Shakers Against Parkinson's of my County. It is for anyone with a movement disorder. So glad to have this class available to me. I begin my first physical therapy session tomorrow at the same Healthplex, and will be seeing the same therapist that normally does the free class. Since I have only 30 PT sessions per year, I was thinking about maybe asking the therapist if the two free classes are similar to PT. If yes, could possibly do one PT session per week (and the two free classes) to extend the sessions to 7 months instead of 4 weeks. I am also doing Silver Sneakers fitness classes M-W-F and Aqua Fit T-Th afternoons at the YMCA. I plan to do the free classes in the morning on T-Th and Aqua in the afternoon. Busy schedule!!! I just started Ashwagandha as well. Who is taking it and what is your optimal dose? I see anywhere from 450mg to 6,000mg per day... very wide range! Hope everyone has a great day! Dayna
