In terms of Parkinson's and speech, I have read and also watch my husband's speech become much softer. After hearing a specialist talk on how Parkinson's can affect the vocal cords, I had my husband sign up for speech therapy. This disease can also affect the ability to swallow as it progresses.
In speech therapy he practices speaking louder, and doing various vocal strengthing exercises. In our area we are fortunate to have a twice a week exercise group for those diagnosed with Parkinson's.

Hello. I have done light therapy several times. It does help most of the time tho I can continue to have breakouts as it goes along.

It can be a sign of Psoriasis. Keep your fingernails clean of polish as the cleaner for those may weaken the nails. Also keep then shortmamdmfIled smooth so the nails don't catch and tear.

No, not taking Amintadine. Will look that one up. He has three carbs-leva (100 mg.) at Breakfast and Lunch. Then 2 1/2 before dinner and that is the timing I see the chattering.

He also had a two hour dementia evaluation on another visit. I notice lately after dinner, he has added some teeth chattering and other facial movements.

My husband was diagnosed about 5 years ago. He has many tremors for a few years before he went to see a neurologist. With very basic treatment here, we arranged to have an evaluation at the Mayo Clinic in Scottsdale, Az. while already down there during the winter. The evaluation there was very thorough.
