Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I have tried various options to address anxiety without effectiveness. I also have some Degenerative Arthritis (knees) and lower back, which complicate walking. I have been diagnosed with Parkinson's via a DatScan, but do not have tremors. Main symptom is right-sided weakness. I have never had anxiety, but over the past few months have increasingly become anxious and have a feeling of internal vibration. Also have a dull, mild pressure headache especially present in right sinus area, but over my entire head in general.I have been taking Sinemet for 2 years with some relief from my symptoms, and this has come on gradually. My Neurologist prescribed Azelect to try to smooth out symptoms, and it helped a bit, but proved too expensive.
