    Nausea after taking generic carbidopa levodopa?

    Pathfinder- Phenergan (aka promethazine) is actually a dopamine blocker and should be avoided by PWPs. Zofran will do the same thing without drowsiness or causing PD issues. I was on high doses of the former when I was recovering from brain decompression surgery in my 30's before they figured out I had YOPD. I felt great cause it makes you somewhat high but I also experienced suppressed breathing and low O2 saturation related to the drug. It also relaxes your CNS. hope this helps....................

    Why do I swing only one arm while walking?

    Something interesting I have found- hold something in your swinging arm ( like a dog's leash) and your non-swinging arm may go back to swinging during the exercise.

    Loss of memory

    I do not remember writing large sections of my dissertation- at all- or most of my defense- I was told it was likely due to stress- only exacerbated by the PD. I do remember graduation however. Don;t remember post I made on another topic last month though. Is there a way to test for memory loss?

    Daily activity. Today I am going to do...

    Today I rode my stationary bike for awhile then off to work where I had the lab all to myself and a great cup of coffee. I signed up as a volunteer for Dreamflight- escorting ill kids from Europe around the theme parks in October- can't wait. Waiting on this latest tropical storm to throw some waves my way- Hey Musicman, when you were a local did you surf? Happy nite everyone!
