I was diagnosed 7 years ago and no one knows I have it unless I mention it. I also have ddd, stenosis, osteoporosis and scoliosis. I do physical therapy exercises as soon as I arise, take a hot shower, have breakfast and go to the pool for deep water walking. I need to change positions often and nap in the afternoon. I’m on Sinemet three times a day before meals. I also take Levothroid and Omeprezole once a day. I take fish oil, a baby aspirin and Metamucil and a stool softener. Remember, ALL your muscles become rigid.
