Can Mayo Clinic give us more assistance than the doctors here, in the Palm Springs area? The information about this disease of Lewy Body has to better & more experienced than what he receives at Desert Oasis Medical. He was diagnosed March 2018.
My husband, "Semaja" has been spiraling downward with his movements and walking. He's in pain as soon as he stands-up and tries to move his legs/feet.
No one has mentioned or discussed his fall in 1991…. might have led to this disease.
It's only recently that one hears about this disease. People didn't discuss @Robin Williams death was a combination of Lewy Bodies and Parkinson. Now, @ted Turner announced that he has them, also.

Thank you Teresa, I think at this time I need to learn more about his Parkinsons. His movement is my big concern at this time. I have been taking him to the VA clinic at this time. They seem to know so much more than the local doctors. The medication he is taking now has seemed to be helping with his Tremors and Twitching. My biggest concern, at this time, is his movement walking. It's so difficult standing and walking. Funny thing is,,, he does more for himself when I'm not around the house.
I always leave Healthy Meals and lots of food in the Refrig! That way I know, when he's hungry he gets up and EATS!
I have recently been taking him to the PT facility.
