Still confused but will give the walker a try when meds are off.

Started by

With my Parkinson's progressing all of a sudden, and being suppose there are two things bothering me. I have been under anesthesia 3 times this year and have had a few hospitalizations and an increase in my depression. My depression meds have been altered and I cannot see my movement disorder neurologist until Dec 22. So, I have picked up a cane with 4 feet but am still off balance. My friend (also a PD patient) suggests seeing another neurologist. My husband is not easy about this and yet I don't know if I should try to adjust my meds myself. I understand all of the input, so now I guess I am more confused but will get out the walker on off days and use the 4-legged cane on good med days.
