I went to a new internal medicine doctor because mine moved. It took her forever to come in and see me, when she did, she had a print out of nearly 20 pages in her hand about PD. I think she was googling PD, because then she starts to ask these crazy questions about Dyskinesia. All I needed was a flue shot. So now I am on the hunt for another internal medicine doctor.
I wonder if internal tremor is simply, for example, the tremors I have under my tongue. Or, could it be something you experience much deeper? Sometimes, my heart feels like it's going to jump out of my chest. It is a feeling of uneasiness and it causes anxiety. I had this feeling shortly after being diagnosed, but it responded to propranolol/I believe that's Inderal, which is a beta blocker. I would have to ask my son Tim exactly what the beta blocker… read more
I just accidentally took 2 carbidopa/levodopa tabs at the same time; one is timed released, a 50/200 mg and the second one; 25/100 mg which is the one I take 4 times/per day. I'm concerned about side effects.
My movement disorder specialist has been working with my meds so that I have as little
“off” time as possible (diagnosed in 2007 at age 47). I’m taking four PD meds: Sinemet (25/100 & 50/200 CR), Mirapex (3.75 ER), Azilec and Amantidine. The Mirapex and Azilec are once per day, Amantidine 3X. The Sinemet - well that’s a tough one. My doctor has given me options on how much I can take based on when my off periods occur.… read more
I am worried about the different times interfering with my dosage. Do I take the medication at British times or the time zone I am in, before meals or at the right time according to Britain? I don't want to feel ill if I can prevent it of course.
I've tried a couple of apps but don't especially want to keep the phone with me all the time. I get up at different times in the morning so
I have to figure out my schedule each day, which wasn't easy with the apps. Writing it down helps a lot but I still find myself forgetting several times a week.
I do not keep a daily journal.. I should, but, ........ Every time I see a doctor, always questions, like:
How many times have you fallen, it the last 30 days
What percentage of the time, are you "off"?
How many hours of sleep, do you average a night?
and so on, I always make a guess, not a good way of keeping my doctor informed of my PD.
