Living with Parkinson's Disease

MBBS, MD - Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Pain Management Specialist, Jaipur

Parkinson's disease

Parkinson's disease affects the part of the brain that controls muscle movement. The exact cause of this disease is not known, but there is a decrease in a chemical called dopamine in the brains of people with Parkinson's. There is no cure for Parkinson's, but it often progresses slowly and the signs can be managed.


Signs:
The 4 most common signs of Parkinson's are:

  •   tremors or shaking when at rest
  •   muscle stiffness
  •   slowed movement or problems starting a movement
  •   problems with balance and movement

As these signs worsen, you may also have trouble walking, talking, swallowing or doing simple tasks such as bathing or dressing. As the disease progresses, other signs such as pain, bowel or bladder problems and sleep problems may occur.

Care issues:
When you start to show signs of this disease, you should consult a neurologist for diagnosis and start medicines. Then you should consult a physiatrist or rehabilitation physician for making rehabilitation plan to prevent early onset of disability. Rehabilitation plan contains medicines, physical therapy or specific exercises, occupation-specific advises brace, etc.
The physical therapist can help you learn exercises that can help you with movements.
You may need to work with your neurologist or physiatrist to make adjustments in your medicines to keep your signs controlled. Over time, many people have side effects from the medicines used to treat Parkinson's disease. You may also need occupational therapy or speech therapy to deal with signs as the disease progresses. As your signs get worse, surgery may be an option to reduce tremors.


Things you can do to manage your signs:

When walking

  •   walk slowly with a straight posture and with your legs further apart.
  • Think about taking big steps to help keep your steps more normal.
  •   use a 4-prong cane or a walker if needed.
  •   if you become stuck or freeze in one place, rock gently from side to side or pretend to step over an object on the floor.
  •   place tape strips on the floor to guide you through your house.
  • Remove area rugs and furniture from your walking path.
  •   stand up from a chair or bed slowly to avoid feeling dizzy or lightheaded.

When using the bathroom
  install grab bars on the walls beside toilets and inside showers and bathtubs to help you stand up.

  •   use a shower chair inside the shower.
  •   install an elevated toilet seat to make standing up easier after using the toilet.
  •   shave with an electric razor.

When dressing

  •   wear loafers or shoes with velcro.
  •   wear simple dresses or pants with elastic waistbands such as sweatpants.

When eating or drinking:

  •   use a cup with a large handle to make it easier to hold.
  •   use a bowl instead of a plate to limit spills and make it easier to scoop up food.
  • Work closely with your rehabilitation team to manage your signs of Parkinson's disease. Rehabilitation can significantly improve your quality of life.

My father is 55 years old and is a teacher. I feel he has some psychiatric problem. He hates to touch everything else his stuffs. In our home he has his separate stuffs (like soap, cumb, mirror etc) to use and no one else can use that. He always used to be extra clean than its required. After touching anything he cleans his hands with soap. Again he always judge things from the meaning of the brand. Like if the brand is like'Lifeboy' its good but if its like'Killer' then he will never use that. He always becomes too nervous when any official task is given to him without even knowing about that in detail. Whenever a problem arises he becomes tensed and tells that to us and everyone else, even who does not have to do anything with it, repeatedly until someone does that or finds a solution. Please tell me how to deal with this problem.

Hi, it appears from your history that your father is suffering from obsessive compulsive disorder. In this disorder person have excessive doubt of contamination and repetitively wash his/her hands depending on thought of contamination. Other sign are like repetitively counting, checking, arranging things in a symmetry, hoarding. Because of all these suffering person spend hours in doing these activity or rituals and unable to pace with life. Its treatable condition and treatment is available in the form of medication as well as therapies like erp or systemic desensitization. Please visit a psychiatrist for further managements.

I have problem in study. Whatever I study or read I forget half thing nd remember half of the things which I have studied. Suggest me something so that I can remember whatever I have studied.

BHMS
Homeopath, Faridabad
Hi, Take homoeopathic medicine for increasing memory - Anacardium 200/ once daily. Management: -Meditate for at least 15 to 30 minutes each day physically changes your brain, making you less anxious, and more rational and empathetic. -Besides increasing your physical strength and flexibility, yoga changes your brain. Research suggests that in addition to reducing stress, anxiety, and depression, yoga protects the brain from shrinking with age. -Exercise daily as it would can help offset the cognitive decline brought on by aging and increasingly sedentary lifestyles. -Get enough sleep. On average, adults need between 7.5 and 9 hours of sleep each night. When you aren’t getting enough sleep, it affects your brain’s ability to do this, and your memory suffers. -Spend time with people whose company you enjoy, and who make you feel like the best version of you. -laughter can improve short-term memory in older adults. -Cutting down on your use of technology (i. E. Sitting in front of your computer, phone, or tablet) for even 30 minutes can improve your brain health and help you think more deeply.

I am 26 year female, recently I realized that I frequently forget things within some minute after remembering. When I get angry I just feel like getting mad or thinking of destroy everything around me. Sometime I did an emotional outburst. I realize that I am suffering some psychological problem. What should I do?

You are emotionally unstable. You need emotional therapy. You are suffering from psychological problem. Because of excessive internal frustrated thoughts. You are very easily getting angerness. Better to analyse your internal thoughts. If anything is secrecy or anything leads to dissatisfaction. Analyse that. Based on that take further steps to come out from this statues. Excessive angerness will not come without any reason. After analyse then take your environment very easily. Maintain calmness and pleasant manner. Better to practise yoga and meditation. Express your internal thoughts to your close friends and family member. Be sociable. Be happy all time. Do not maintain this status. It is always problematic to you. Better to come out from this status. Ok all the best.

We talk about love at drop of a hat, but one should realize that both the concerned persons are basically concerned about there mutual interest. In your case may be her prioritized interests are not overlapping with yours. And there is nothing anyone can do about it. We believe what we want to believe. Not necessarily what is true. She is the ideal match, I may not be able to live without her etc etc, you simple ignore the bitter past and project future on the pleasant history. No one knows the outcome of marriage, in case you would have got married, but may be you like to believe that it would have been ideal. Fixity in a life which is a flux, is non-living, you may revisit your fixity in believing hat you do. Take a counseling session if needed. River never gets halted by rocks, it either makes a way through it or diverts but it keeps on flowing all the time.

My wife is suffering from ocd and she has problem of repeating hand wash. Is it curable. Now a days she is involved very much in it.

MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Chennai
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples like sexual thoughts, counting, checking, orderliness, etc. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. Consult a psychiatrist. All the best.

Hi I am diagnosed with schizophrenia I am taking medicine for 8 years need get out of medicine please help me I had mercury amalgam removed by a regular dentist not completely but some part still remain since it is very deep, when I visit psychiatrist they ask me to go job my sleep is not improving by medicine please help.

MBBS, DPM
Psychiatrist, Bangalore
Dear lybrate-user, Please write in detail about the medicines that you are taking. Mercury amalgam does not have any effect on schizophrenia or sleep disturbances. If you are finding any improvement with medicines, you should not think of get out of medicines. Job is a must at this age of 32 years. It is not for earning alone. It is to keep your brain occupied. If your sleep is disturbed, please consult your psychiatrist again, he/she may diagnose and treat it.

Are you looking for a solution to being ditched by so many guys? If so, you must look at the possibility of suffering from the rejection issue which actually makes you do something or the other to set up the rejection. This can often happen to a person who has experienced rejection at some point in his/her life, especially in the childhood. Then you will tend to enact this in four different ways. But if you are looking as to what to do about yoru depression, then here goes: You must go and meet with a counselor immediately and if that person advises that you meet with a doctor you must do so and cooperate to your utmost. Please visit these professionals along with your parents. In the meantime please do the following sincerely because you could resolve the problem better with good cooperation: Have a good night’s sleep, have a good breakfast of more proteins, meditate often, remain free of stress, eat a lot of fiber, nuts, avocado, exercise regularly, eat dark chocolate, do Yoga meditation exercises, etc. I suggest you do the opposite of what this depression makes you feel like doing (actually, not doing): you will need to fight this condition. You must become active; stay upright during the daylight time; meet people; never sleep during the day, wake up by 6 am every day, play some active games, especially contact games, do physical exercises, talk to people and join some social clubs, attend Yoga classes etc. Watch sitcoms on TV or comedies and cheer yourself up. Go for excursions in groups, for outings, camps, conferences, and religious conventions. Get a pet dog and spend time training it, exercising it and relating to it. Expose yourself to some sunlight every day, at least, 30 minutes but not in the scorching heat. Whatever happens, please incorporate these three important adaptations in your life: always be responsible, be respectful, and be functional. If you did these three, lots of things will go well in life. Please pray and have faith in God to alleviate your sufferings. Don’t wait for others to help. Use your own motivation, which might be at its lowest, but persevere and win this battle. Above all to be really happy, you need to live in love and for love. Learn all about emotions and how to handle them and that will get you out of the depression rather easily and quickly. A counselor is there only to facilitate you, all the hard word must come from you, and your cooperation with that person is very critical for your success. Be positive every day and learn to be contented with what you have. Do some left brain exercises: it is the happy brain. Here are a few suggestions: shut your left nostril and breathe, move your eyes from right to left and vice versa for at least half a minute at a time, and do callisthenic exercises with some form of counting, regularly. Whatever happens please cooperate with the therapy and do not discontinue until the condition is completely resolved. As you can see if you do not solve the problem of rejection, you may never solve the problem of depression. I think rejection precedes the depression and not the other way around. You may be putting the cart before the horse!

Sir, due to Demnesia, I feel like forgetting simple things, ability to memorize things getting less. I am college student. It heavily affect on my study.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
In your age you do not have dementia as you said. Research-based strategies to boost your memory and keep it strong 7 Strategies for Remembering 1.Become interested in what you're learning. We're all better remembering what interests us. Few people, for example, have a difficult time remembering the names of people they find attractive. If you're not intrinsically interested in what you're learning or trying to remember, you must find a way to become so. 2.Find a way to leverage your visual memory. You'll be surprised by how much more this will enable you to remember. For example, imagine you're at a party and are introduced to five people in quick succession. How can you quickly memorize their names? Pick out a single defining visual characteristic of each person and connect it to a visual representation of their name, preferably through an action of some kind. Remember: Memory is predominantly visual. 3.Create a mental memory tree. If you're trying to memorize a large number of facts, find a way to relate them in your mind visually with a memory tree. Construct big branches first, then leaves. Branches and leaves should carry labels that are personally meaningful to you in some way, and the organization of the facts ("leaves") should be logical. 4.Associate what you're trying to learn with what you already know. It seems the more mental connections we have to a piece of information, the more successful we'll be in remembering it. This is why using mnemonics. Write out the items to be memorized over and over and over. 5.When reading for retention, summarize each paragraph in the margin. This requires you to think about what you're reading, recycle it, and teach it to yourself again. Even take the concepts you're learning and reason forward with them; apply them to imagined novel situations, which creates more neural connections to reinforce the memory. 6.Do most of your studying in the afternoon. Though you may identify yourself as a "morning person" or "evening person" at least one Study. Suggests your ability to memorize isn't influenced as much by what time of day you perceive yourself to be most alert but by the time of day you actually study—afternoon appearing to be the best. 7.Get adequate sleep to consolidate and retain memories. Not just at night after you've studied but the day, you study as well. Far better to do this than to stay up cramming all night for an exam.

Dear lybrate user, you must be quiet tired and frustrated if you are not able to sleep for 2 - 3 days/night. Sometimes the mind keeps working without break and hence affects the body. Your lack of sleep may be a result of something going on in your mind. Probably you are not aware of it or may be you are unable to express it with someone you can trust. The allopathy medicines will give you only symptomatic relief but will not treat the root cause. Hence, please talk to a counsellor who will help you to understand what is going on in your mind and how you can manage your emotions. Take care.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

I am concerned that you may be at an early stage of a condition that needs immediate attention. The intervention at this stage may arrest the situation and may actually revert it you back to normalcy. Please meet with a counselor first and on that person? s advice, you may seek medical intervention. Do take your parents with you and make a complete history of yourself from prenatal days to the current state. You will also have to take the family history from up to your grandparents to consider the genetic influences. And remember it will all depend on your cooperation with the counseling and the medical prescription. Whenever in doubt, seek a second opinion, but never regulate the medication or therapy on your own.

Procrastination is process of putting of things that are important and indulging into not that important things. It is like doing activities which are preferred over activities which are not preferred but important. To stay away from procrastination 1. Identify that you are procrastinating on some activity 2. Find out the reason for procrastination 3. Use strategies against procrastination eg: rewarding yourself on completing the unpleasant task, ask someone to keep a tab on your work, make a to do list. Finally always remember these tips will only help if you work on them there is no substitute for hard work.

Dear, Anger and aggression are emotions. Anger comes when you become irritated. Irritation happens when you don't like something, or when something is repeated. As anger is an emotion, it should be vent out. You should be able to throw anger out instead of controlling it. But more perfect will be, know the frustrating situations and stop being emotional. If practiced properly, you will not get irritated at those circumstances at all. Those techniques are much easier to understand. Please post a private question with all the details and I shall help you with those tips and tricks. Take care.

Once you do this you will not have the need to maturbate under compulsion, the counsellor will also help you manage and get rid of your negative thoughts.

Dear lybrate user. I can understand. Night fall, or nocturnal emission is common and it is never unhealthy. Night fall cannot be a reason for your memory problems. At your age, memory problems like amnesia, dementia etc are not possible. Don't worry. Still if you insist that you have memory problems, we need to conduct a memory test. Take care.
