Thanks so much worn1 for your insight and the various meds out there for us with PD to slow it down some. I'm already on Valproic Acid Caps 250mg 9daily, Mysoline 250mg 2daily, Dilantin 100mg 5daily Levetiracetam 500mg 6daily, Synthroid 75mg 1daily, 1 Iron Pill 38mg 1daily. I no longer drive as I surrendured My D.L. after a seizure and totaling it out I wasn't sighted for a ticket as it was a medical disorder. When I received the form from the DMV it was No Tickets, No Citations, No Warrents, Clean Record. My wife who stands beside me drives me to Saint Marks Hospital as I've worked in a a Hospital Environment for the past 28 years. I love serving others for all the help I've been given by so many. I feel we are put on this earth to serve each other, and if I can brighten someone's day I feel a great sence of peace. I have a photo graphic memory and I enjoy the 60's-90's music as well as a little dog which is my daughters that seem to say you had a bad day and I have your cure! Look how hard my little tail is wagging. I sincerely appreciate your words as having PD can be very fustrating at times as I've gone to get a small bite to eat brought in by the I.C.U Staff , and I'm shaking so bad I drop the spoon and walk away. Feeling really embarrased. This has been a hard thing ffor me to even write as my hands won't stop shaking. Your Awesome! Your PD Bud Chuck ReedView Thread
I came out of 6th grade going into Junoir High when I started with Grand Mall Seisures. I have had tremers for the Majority of my life as my son thinks my signature is I'm writing with a squiggly pen. I had my Physical yesterday and was diagnosed with PD. About 4 monthes ago my central nervous system went. I am already taking over 4000mg of Depressants to slow the brain down to keep in line with the body. I sincerely apologize if I mispelled as my hands are bouncing on the keys that I'm trying to type. I have an appointment with my Neurologist next month as I had to back off some Meds as my Equalibrium was shot. Which Meds have worked the the best to help control PD. I work in the Hospital and with the pace I move my tremers increase to where they are noticed by the staff. Thanks for allowing me to be apart of this discussion, that they may find a permanent cure someday. The thing that I notice is that little children are very observant of someone with any form of shaking disorder. I have had them ask my "Why do you Shake so much Mr." I tell them that it's the next thing on my To Do List! Then I ask them to shake each hand and foot and tell them that they can take that off their things To Do List. I know that it is also caused from being Stressed which is Desserts spelt backwards.
