I was diagnosed some 6 years ago and am now on siminet (1.5 tablets 4 times a day) and pramapexole ( 3 times a day, plus rasageline once a day. ( Stavelo was tried but caused rectal problems!)
Whilst medication used to be fine and i have currently have no sign of tremor at this time only a painful shoulder on right side when medication wears off, (the tremor and shoulder being the original sympoms)I have for the last 6 months been noticing substantial weakness in both my legs just before and after each dose of medication. I have mentioned this to my Consultant (1 month ago) and my PN 6 months ago.
Does anyone else suffer from this? I have not seen any other posts mentioning this, and if you do is their anyway to improve this?
As it stands at the moment I am having quite noticeable ups and downs as the medication runs out and a new dose is activated.
I have also been wearing a magnetic wristband which appears to reduce the painful shoulder some, as since wearing it the intensity of the pain has been moderated and is more bearable.
