Discussions that mention requip

Parkinson's Disease board


I take a very small 1mg 3/d of Requip which is the same as Mirapex. I'm 50 and started with lack of arm swing and then walking problems at 46. I actually started with a rhemuttologist who sent me to a neurologist who strated doing MRI's and found the constriction. I had surgery Sept 05 but when things only got 80% better they diagnosed parkinson's as well. I have good days and bad days with some leg stiffness and walking and a very minor tremor. I do a lot of exercise to "fight all this" not that it helps - I swim, do water weights, go to Curves and walk/treadmill. If you haven't had an MRI you should ask about it - at least it would rule out other things.

good luck
