Been going to YMCA on Saturday mornings for years. I am recently diagnosed with PD and trying to establish a daily exercise regimen. Anyone every tried crossfit for daily exercise motivation? What do you do to stay motivated? Thanks, Fred Diagnosed Oct 20 2017. currently on 1.5 tablets 25/100 CL 3 times a day. Stopped taking requip, it gave me weird dreams. Considering rasagilene, generic for azilect? No tremors, slight lean backward on left side.
Hi, I'm recently diagnosed with PD as of October 2017. I have been having occasional pain in my right leg on the back of the knee radiating down my leg. Occasionaly I have pains in the top of my knee, and muscles below. Does anyone else have problems like this? Does this have anything to do with PD? Fred. symptoms in 2016, diagnosed Oct, 2017 with PD, no tremors, was sluggish mentally and physically, respond to C/L, currently 1.5 pills c/l 25/100 3 x daily, tried requip, gave my bad dreams, looking for an MDS
I was very sluggish mentally and physically, do not have tremors, and didn't know what problem was for about a year. Went to internist, and endocrinologist. because my senthroid had been reduced from 175 Mg daily to 125. endo wouldn't change my senthroid level. Internist put me on prosac and thought that would help but I didn't see where it did any good. Wife insisted I go to a neurologist. Neurologist examined me and put me on carbo/levod immediately October 2017,age 65. which helped, and I later asked for an increase in dosage. . I am now at 1 and 1/2 pills of 10/100 carbo/levodopa 3 times a day. Mornings I am weak, it takes a while for the levedopa to rev me up.Current neuro gave me requip to take at night as a extended release, because levodopa has a 4 hour half life. , but it kept me awake all night and gave me bad dreams. Tried taking it in the morning but still had bad dreams at night. Pharmacist says many prescriptions are given for timed release levodopa at night, but neurologist is hesitant. Neuro prescribed azilect but it is very expensive and I didn't try it, is it worth it? PD foundation says I need to find a neurologist who has a fellowship in movement disorders. Current Neurologist does not have movement disorder speciality. Sister wants me to go to a teaching hospital for treatment. what advice do you you give as to medications? exercise? and other treatments, and other doctors? Thanks, Fred
