Restless Leg Syndrome, Excessive Shaking and More

Here is a short list of some of the questions I answered in Part IV of my Q&A program today concerning the causes and treatments for symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

  • How can I go about reducing the dosage of medications I take? They are not working for me.
  • I want to know more about the Aquas.
  • What can I do for Restless Leg Syndrome?
  • What is the best way to control excessive shaking?
  • What about amino acid therapy as a treatment for Parkinson’s symptoms?
  • How can I stop my intercostals from contracting, worsening by 3 am and awakening me at night?
  • What about parasites, worms, and smaller creatures like mold, fungus, staph infections, etc. What role do they play if any?

Restless Leg Syndrome

Dear Robert,

I have been diagnosed with PD in late 2007 and I am frequently listening to your radioblog. I am writing because I have gotten rid of RLS [restless leg syndrome] and some others may be helped too by following a similar path.

I am following the 12 step program of John Coleman for symptom reduction and have weekly sessions in Joga, Boxing, Gym and have a daily walking routine. Improvements were very slow and after consulting a new neurologist in 2009, I started to take 3 times a day 3/4th of one Madopar Tablet (Levodopa+Benserazide 200mg/50mg). I started to feel a bit better but because of RLS problems I could not sleep and in spite of eating well, I did not gain my proper body weight.

In mid-September 2009, following the advice of my neurologist, I started taking 1/2 tablet Mornings and Mid-Day, and one tablet in the evening of 0.50mg tablets of Sifrol (Pramipexole hydrochloride) a day in addition to Madopar. Within a week the RLS disappeared and I started to get back some of my earlier strength and my appropriate body weight.

I am very happy, feel very positive. I can easily take care of myself and travel extensively, and returning from four weeks in Uzbekistan, I listened to your Stories from People on the Road to Recovery and the interview with John Gold.

I leave it up to you if you want to pass on my note and wish you more success with your great work
