    she order me a sleep study for 2/19....because i have stopped breathing at times..

    she prescribed, atamet, sinemet..i got the geneeric form carbidopa/levodopa 25/100...so we'll see what the one will do i did ask about mirapex...i have kaiser...

    i have meniscus problem in my right knee...exercixes

    i need to lose weight..these meds are just fanatastic...

    Progress. Thank heaven that they gave you some meds to help. It sounds like a good doctor's visit (as it should be). I believe in action to get things done and you certainly have done that. I have read that others have had luck with Sinemet. Let us know how you do.

    All I could think of was "gee, I talked to Doctor about my jerks too. But he said that unless I served him with evication papers he would be able to stay!"


    So glad you are seeing someone who is working WITH you!! AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Jodie - I have the jerks too. I saw a neuro last year and he said it was nothing to worry about too. My MRI, MRA, EMG, and neuro testing were all clear. I guess it's just part of this stupid syndrome!

    i think i was in denial, first i was getting told and poked at night by the idiot boyfriend saying i was snoring///then my ex- hubby was telling me i snore...well i nevered snored when we were married...but i would notice i was waking up gasping for air...so i guess they were telling the truth...

    i need to take action for my dad had stroke...but he was or is a sober alcoholic..

    wait and see approach and she gave me meds for the rls...
