Well, #psvantx, looks like we both got some good news yesterday. I had my regular 90 day check and no changes to meds are needed. Doc says I should make 20 more years. Being 74 now, that seems a little ambitious.
As to why your last few visits seemed contradictory, the disease is so different to each of us that figuring out what any one symptom is caused by and best treated by what is a real moving target.
For example, my dizziness turns out to be simple low blood pressure and can be fixed by raising the head of my bed 2 inches and adding a pinch of salt to dinner. And exercise is god for PD and most every thing else. After all, if part of the problem is junk in the brain, you need more blood flow.
Even diagnosing it is tricky, I had really expensive Executive Physicals in Houston’s best hospitals annually for 9 years with many of the classic symptoms and no one caught it until I gave in to the symptoms and retired to a mid-sized Texas town and in my first visit to a PA was diagnosed by him just watching me sit for a few minutes.
So, hope you have a great New Year and maybe I’ll see you down the road.
