Types of care for PD patients

Has Parkinson’s singled you out for the DMV?

Has Parkinson’s singled you out for the DMV?

I do not want the government in every aspect of our lives. My husband hasn’t even had a traffic ticket for like 30 years and all of a sudden, we have to put him through medical tests, written tests, and driving tests to see if he can drive!!!!!!

I agree. Boxing is great exercise and therapeutic. Sometimes it just feels right to punch the living snot out of something

I have struggled with unexplained vomiting, and diarrhea for years, but I have finally received a diagnosis.

I have had periodic vomiting and diarrhea for years with no explanation. Today it was diagnosed as gastroparesis after I had an upper endoscopy and upper G.I. test. Has anyone else had this, and if so, have you found anything to help the symptoms?

Tumeric and Blueberries

Tumeric and Blueberries

I put Tumeric on food (ie steak) and in food (eg Indian type meals) and I take a handful of blueberries each day.

My Parkinsons does not seem to progress as quickly as others (diagnosed at same time)

Has anyone found similar benefits or is it a coincidence

The problem is I’m concerned about the interaction with food such as Protein and Pyridoxine, Vitamin B6, which can reduce the effectiveness of the Sinimet. My normal breakfast was yogurt with cereal, the first being high in protein and the second often containing B6 supplements. If I wait an hour to an hour and a half after taking a… read more
