Yes, neon man, I'd definitely vote for giving you a nice large diamond!  You still have such a wonderfully positive attitude after 25 years!  I feel energized just reading about all the things you are doing.  Keep up the good work!


From the inside my attitude looks pretty ordinary, but thanks for the response!!!

... the doctors we have been to have a "there's nothing you can do so come back (worse) in a year" approach. As I am a doctor too, I resent that attitude, so we will keep looking. ...we've been reading, researching and learning all we can to beat this thing, together.


Those sentences capture my attitude perfectly.

Hi all,

Thanks for letting me post my story.

Starting in early 2016 or late 2015 I noticed a loss of energy and sluggishness in speech and movement.  I thought the condition was thyroid related because my senthroid had been reduced from 175 mg to 125 .I also thought I may have had a mini stroke but no other stroke symptoms.  I had numerous doctors visits and blood test to no avail.A sister in law, whose father was a surgeon, told my wife she thought I might have Parkinsons disease. i shrugged off the idea since I have never had tremors. Internist and psychiatrist recommended I go on prozac, which did nothing for my energy levels. Went to a Neuro in Oct 2017 and he prescribed c/l immediately which helped a lot  and later switched to c/l extended release. After many discussions with my pharmacist.  Switching to a MDS this march 26 2018 because my current neuro is not  a MDS.  Tried requip as a supplement to c/l but it gave me bad dreams. Looking forward to new neuro and hope for better treatment. Went to first cycling class at the YMCA last wednesday due to tip form a fellow forum member which was helpful.
