    symptoms are pretty much non-existent today. Got all most everything on my to-do list done. I just have to make dinner and then spend the night relaxing

    I've had a little setback I don't know if it's a lack of sleep, medication or this illness causing the cramps in my calves. I've been dealing with cramps in my right leg for over 15years now but recently I'm now experiencing the same thing in my left leg.

      Took the Christmas tree down and organized all the Christmas decorations, clean the house, laundry done and made dinner. I'm really wiped out which is good because I have to be up by five for work .

          • StartedMar 1, 2012

          • Advice & Tipswhen I first started this treatment the doctor prescribed Levadopa 25mg to balance out the nausea . It really seem to work well . I've since been taken off the additional Levadopa since my insurance will not cover it . If your insurance will cover it then I would advise asking about the Levadopa 25mg to go with the carbadopa/levadopa 100/25mg if you have nausea .

          I've had an excellent day. Tremors are down and almost non-existent today. I drove over to my 84-year-old mothers house and took her to the grocery store, drug store and brought her back home. Put her grocery away, gather her mail and fix her flood light. I came home symptom-free for the day and I cleaned, cooked dinner, took the dog out to play and I did all this on just 4 1/2 hours of sleep. Now I'm settling in and waiting for the ball to drop. Happy New Year Everyone
