I had an appointment with the Parkinson’s/Neurological Nurse this week. She works closely with my Neurologist and I had had a change of medication recently and he asked her to check how things are going.
It was a very positive appointment and she talked through if I had noticed any improvement or had any issues since the new medication was introduced. I was happy to report that I have had positive effects from the new medications and others had noticed more expression and animation. I feel that I have more energy and feel able to do lots of hard work in the garden.
She tested me with a few small physical tasks and I am pleased to report that she says that there is absolutely no sign of any Parkinson’s on my right side. So, all in all great news that I have not progressed much since diagnosis nearly 16 months ago. It’s nice to know though that I have specialist support and advice any time I need it, but for now I shall just keep taking the meds, doing my exercises, riding my bike and enjoying life!

I take Ramipex and recently put on Sinimet. The Sinimet has made a big difference to my energy levels
I still have to not overdo things though and rest from time to time.
