I have encephalitic parkinson since 2009, after initial 18 months there has been no improvement in my rigid limbs and tremors. Is there any treatment?

I have encephalitic parkinson since 2009, after initial 18 months there has been no improvement in my rigid limbs and tremors. Is there any treatment?

Yes: Some cases of Parkinsonism do not respond well to L-DOPA, so a different therapeutic approach is advised. Would suggest trial of Stalevo, (carbidopa and levodopa and entacapone) which contains entacapone, which may enhance the Sinemet effect, and you may be better off with a longer duration agonist such as Neupro patch. Would do active physical therapy, and maybe BOTOX, for the rigidity. Find movement disorder center at medical school ...Read more

What are the causes, symptoms and treatment options for Parkinson's disease in elderly women. Is mild tremor of the hands indicative of the illness?

Gods Rx Available!!: Dopamine meds are mainstay of treatment. Modern therapy recommends longer lasting, milder potency meds first: Azilect (mao-b selective inhibitor) & Dopamine agonists (requip xl/mirapex er/neupro--cautiously in the elderly). If these are inadequate & stronger meds are needed to manage symptoms, then sinemet +/- Comtan (stalevo (carbidopa and levodopa and entacapone) is both together) are begun.

Low ceruloplasmin blood test is 15 and range 20-60. Have palatal tremor and eye pain. Chances of it being wilson and can treatment reverse tremor?

This is serious: Either you have wilson's or your don't. If you do have wilson's, we can manage it with your compliance. Your physcian knows how to do the workup; serum copper is just a not-that-good screen. Don't even try to estimate the odds; just remember how horribly treacherous wilson's is, and how grim missing the diagnosis would be. ...Read more

Dr. Peter Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:

Wilson's testing: Palatal tremor is not a typical manifestation of wilson's disease compared to arm tremor affecting proximal muscles. However, with the low ceruloplasmin, follow up testing including liver function tests and 24 hour urine quantitation can be useful. The gold standard continues to be liver biopsy in cases that are uncertain, but this is an invasive test. ...Read more

Can exercising and taking protein shakes causes bladder issues? If yes, then please mention the issues and their treatments?

See answer: Though some bladder or urological problems may be aggravated by exercise, stress, or dietary factors (alcohol, caffeine, spicy or acidic/citrus foods and beverages); exercise and protein shakes do not generally cause "bladder issues". Interstitial cystitis and non-bacterial prostatitis are two relatively common urological problems that can be aggravated by exercise and/or dietary indiscretions. ...Read more

I have body tremors a lot. After sex today they started going a lot. During sex I didn't feel them. Any reason why after sex I feel the tremor more?

I have body tremors a lot. After sex today they started going a lot. During sex I didn't feel them. Any reason why after sex I feel the tremor more?

Adrenaline: After a high Adrenalin situation like sex there is an excess of it for awile. That makes muscles tend to shake when attempting to relax, like after sex. The same thing happens to muscles after they have been fatigued to the max and they are recovering. In that case it is from lactic acid. Most (not all) tremors improve during exercise. Some drugs legal or otherwise, caffeen, and stress worsen it. ...Read more

Dr. Klinghardt, the country's top Lyme disease expert, has opined that movement disorders like tremors could be a stage 2 manifestation of Lyme.
