Along with the usual Parkinisms, I also get a strong cramping spasm in the abdominal area when I try to stand upright without holding on to my walker. I had the DBS surgery hoping to find some relief by finding the optimal electrical setting to disrupt the spasms. But, so far, we have not been able to find any setting that provides any relief. I would love to find someone who has had successful surgery for some guidance.
With deep brain stimulation, two probes are implanted into your brain and attached to an electrical device which can send different voltage, band width and frequency signals to that location disrupting the undesirable effect such as tremors. That's a very basic description, you can google for more detailed definition.
