I am having a lot of problems talking lately . I will be talking and forget a simple word and can't think of it. Friends will add the word for me.

Is anyone have this problem and what are you doing for it ?
I agree with Kathy unless, like me, there is a deeper problem called aphasia. You might talk to your doctor, and if he sees no physical problems, you might follow Kathy’s advice.
Despite proven effectiveness and wide use of levodopa, usually prescribed as Sinemet® (carbidopa-levodopa), to manage movement symptoms in PD, doubts have lingered over the drug’s long-term safety.

My husband told me this morning that I screamed out so loud last night that our neighbors could have heard me. I don't remember dreaming about anything.

I have lost a lot of weight in the last month. I am having problems swallowing at times and feel full fast so am not eating as much as I should. I have found I have to stay away from alot of Protien as it interferes with my medications. Has anyone else noticed a large weight drop?
I hope so too for your good
Parkinson’s disease impacts people in many different ways.

Thiamine HCI (vitamin B1) therapy has been a game changer for me and instrumental in reversing many of my symptoms. It's quite popular in Italy, where pharmaceuticals are not always the first approach used for treatment.
At 4 weeks of 2000 mg daily, Thiamine HCI these are the benefits I have experienced
• improved balance almost normal.
• relief from constipation.
At 8 weeks of 2000 mg daily of Thiamine HCI
• swift movement instead of slow motion.
