Re: Parkinson's Doctor
I live in the LA area and have Kaiser Ins. My Dr. is a movement specialist, Bruce Enose.
I don't think he see's non-kaiser patients. UCAL has a number of good PD Dr.'s as does the Neuroscience group in Oxnard, Ca. Also, Cedars Sinia (sp) has several good PD doctors.
PD can cause constipation, usually at the later stages of the disease. Don't think loose bowls are normally a symptom of PD.
PD is a defficency of dopamine, and seratonin, and low seratonin levels can lead to depression, fatigue, etc.
I take an antidepressant (Zoloft) to increase my seratonin blood levels. Really help !
Zoloft is a SSRI (selective seraronin reuptake inhibitor) and these types of antidepressants work best for PD.
