My dad has PD and has had very good results from the Nupro patch. He is now taking treatments of Opdivo for metastatic melanoma and has to discontinue the patch because they were causing sores. His tremors and other PD ailments have increased substantially. I was wondering if there may be an oral med that could replace the patch? anyone know of anything?
On and off periods are causing horrible pain that can last for hours with rigidity. Pain is being treating with diaulid but it doesn't help much with the pain. Doctor is suggesting to have surgery so the levodopa is directly delivered into the upper intestine. It's called Duodopa. I am wondering if anyone had similar pain symptoms and has tried Duodopa. Or has switched to the Neupro patch to help.
Is nausea a common symptom in PD? My husband has an MRI scheduled for next week (7th) and has not started on any medications yet. He has daily bouts of nausea sometimes accompanied by vomiting. The "bouts" are getting to be more often just over the past few days. He could hardly stand yesterday because of it so just laid on the couch.
MRI came back good. No masse/tumor which was a huge relief!!. His nausea is getting even worse than it was before (along with his other symptoms). He was given a script for Zofran (only 10 tabs!!)… read more
