My husband uses Fluticasone spray and it helps with nasal dripping but drooling can get awful and he has to constantly wipe his mouth. Sucking on candy or lozenges helps.

Does Anyone With PD Have Noticeable One/half Body Swelling/

Does Anyone With PD Have Noticeable One/half Body Swelling/

The left side of my husband's body from neck to toes is swollen. Dr has no idea, but has run basic tests for heart and blood pressure and etc. My husband gets some massage and seems to help a bit. It definitely helps when he takes ginseng.

A MyParkinsonsTeam Member said:

That was happened to me. My doctor put me on Rytary and increased the dosage as well as having to double my water intake. No more swelling.

Has Anyone Used The Scopolamine Patch To Help With Excessive Phlegm?

Has Anyone Used The Scopolamine Patch To Help With Excessive Phlegm?

My husband gets bouts of very thick phlegm - usually after drinking water/juice and swallowing too much. It might just be building up and the liquid brings it to the surface. It's not drooling but thick, globby gunk that comes out. It was suggested he try using the scopolamine patch (used for seasickness/motion sickness). Just curious if anyone has tried this and if it helps. Thanks

I take guaifenesin or musinex to thin my mucus. You can get a generic labeled chest congestion relief which is the same thing but much cheaper. I take two 400mg tablets when I need it.

Any Suggestions For Dealing With Vomiting, Rapid Weight Loss And Lack Of Appetite?

Any Suggestions For Dealing With Vomiting, Rapid Weight Loss And Lack Of Appetite?

Hi all
My Mom was diagnosed last year with PD. She has been doing well until about a month ago when she started vomiting every time she eats, even just a teaspoon of chicken broth comes right back up. She says she has excessive phlegm in her throat and when she swallows food, it moves it down and then everything comes back up. She has had an endoscopy with good results, no ulcers or cancer or anything unusual.

My mom has literally not eaten in about 6 weeks. It seems to have started with an… read more

I Think I'm Developing A Condition Called Dysphagia - Swallowing Disorders. It's Apparently Fairly Common With PD, And Can Contribute

to development of aspirational pneumonia, the leading cause of that-which-I-try-not-to-dwell-upon. My questions 1) Anyone know if there is a treatment? 2) Prevention is in this case better than a cure, so can anyone recommend ways to keep from breathing in chunks of food? I understand speech therapists sometimes have success.

A MyParkinsonsTeam Member said:

Speech therapy is a definite help, soft and/or thick liquid diet helps. Also try to avoid food which causes mucous to gather in your throat. Also eat small bites

How To Clear Sticky Phlegm In Patient With Stroke And PD?

How To Clear Sticky Phlegm In Patient With Stroke And PD?

I joined this group because I have difficulty sometimes with figuring out how to manage my dad's issues as between the major stroke that left him left side paralyzed versus the PD. For example, he gets a great deal of sticky phlegm in the night from the PD. He tries to take small sips of water during the day to try and thin it and moisten his throat, but it is very difficult due to the stroke. He cannot chew or swallow any food or drink well at all due to the stroke and is on a permanent… read more
