Response to levodopa/carbo
My dad is diagnosed with either Parkinson's with dementia or multiple system atrophy. I kept asking him if the levodopa was helping and he says I don't know how can I tell? I went through a list of things asking is it helping with moving etc. the only thing he did say that he noticed help with was that he felt a little better inside his brain. He has dementia real bad now so I just don't think he can tell. Do you guys have pain? It worries me he is in pain. I ask and he says stop asking me I am not in pain I would tell you. Then a few hours later he is holding his back or leg saying they hurt. Hope this helps.
