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).

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
