My husband has had FTD for 3 1/2 years and the left arm and hand started to be contractured a couple yrs ago.. He is so stiff and hard to get around and to move in bed. He is just like a board it seems, is dead weight. I am wondering if this is a form of Parkinson's disease. I have not spoken to the Dr about this. Wondering if Parkinson's and FTFD go hand in hand. Does a Parkinson's medicine help any?
