My Mother who is 64 has known she had PD for a few years. She's got varying symptoms, but the worst just now is the falling. Up until a few months ago she feel maybe feel an average of once every 2-3 months and they werent too serious.
I would now say in the past few weeks she has fallen 9-15 times, and a few of them have been bad ones. It's just went ballistic. Every single day now I'm now expecting her to fall. She's in a lot of pain, mentally and physically because of them, and now is really starting to fell useless and pathetic. Is there anything that can be done to stop the frequency of them?
She takes Co-Carbidopa, Bendroflumethiazide, Zopiclone, and Citalopram.
