  • Can prolia cause parkinson?

  • Exactly why does benadryl cause bruising in some people? i bruise very easily to begin with and the effect is so marked in me that i cannot take it, although i also have significant allergies
    I take vitamin C with bioflavanoids along with grape seed/pine bark extract and also use arnica gel for bruising all the time because I consistently have ugly bruises on my arms and legs, the source of which I normally cannot place. A tiny bump that doesn't even hurt is all it takes. When I take benadryl, I'm absolutely covered with bruises. What is the mechanism by which this happens? I want to try doxylamine succinate (active ingredient in original Unisom) for sleep because I have insomnia, but it is also a first generation antihistamine. As such, would it be expected to cause the same problem?
  • How often is parkinson's disease confused with chronic lyme diseasse?
    Back in the early 1950s I had the joy and privilege of spending a couple of summers on Cape Cod. As a kid, a lot of that time was spent playing in the grove of poplar trees and bramble behind the house. I clearly remember numerous buried tics, some of which resulted in a circular ring around the tic sites, some with a rash.

    A year later some strange things began: high fever, life-long right-side tendency for tonsillitis, persistent 'mononucleosis', poor memory, low energy, and migraines which eventually became the scourge of my adult life. All that hidden under a blanket of high emotional stress caused by life-altering changes in the family.

    2010: diagnosed with well developed Parkinson's Disease (PD).

  • Mother recovered significantly from confusion (1 response)
    My very independent, active mother was diagnosed with Parkinson's (long over due, she did not have the common tremor but instead had issues with her gait).

    She was already on Wellbutrin and Prozac because they thought her shuffling was muscle weakness due to inactivity caused by depression. Once properly diagnosed and under the treatment of a neurologist for Parkinson's she was prescribed Sinemet. Her ability to walk increased dramatically however she was extremely confused. She constantly wanted to go home even though she was. She would get angry with us if we tried to convince her otherwise. She confused family members with other people and thought very off the wall situations were occurring with them. The neurologist said she had common symptoms of senile dementia which can accompany Parkinson's patients. Due to a random ordered hearing/vertigo test, we were instructed to take her off of all her medications a week prior to the test. Because the sinemet was so difficult to get her to tolerate due to extreme nausea I did not take her off of it but I took her off everything else. Within four to five days of being off the depression medication which had been combined with the sinemet she had a 360 degree turnaround in her confusion. She was even able to tell me that she knew she was confused but could not reason herself out of it. It was an end to eight months of pure H**. If you have a family suffering confusion and symptoms of senility that is on Sinemet and also taking anti-depression medications, insist that they be weaned of the anti-depressants before you accept the senility diagnosis.
