Greetings gentleman...

For a start i beg your pardon for subscribing only now in seek of help...
I belive i've depleted all and every diagnostic method available in my country... and so i seek an.. outside... council.

Five years ago... my parents divorced. Me and my sister endured ok the strange process... and cameout fine of it... my father seems to be fine to... my mother... well... my mother is the problem.

In 5 years... my mother went from the type of person i saw leaving the house at 10am, arriving at 23h... or even 0h completly soaked and with to huge bags in each hand... to a completly dependant person. It first started with a slight loss of fisical equilibrium... i mean... if she would just bend some degreesÂș ... shee would fall in that direction... period. Now she must walk always against a wall, or grabbed to something or someone. I'll try to put the simptoms, facts, diags methods attempted.. all i can remeber...

Facts:

[list]
[*]Each and every simthom is most visible in her LEFT side
[*]Neck becomes stiff when under ansity or nerve charge. Difficult breading
[*]Muscle stiffnes... perhaps muscle atrophy... Physiotherapy is being practiced in a local hospital.
[*]Tremors... from slight to perfectly visible... (signature became invalid... completly)
[*]Depression... Hard one. (my mother has a historic BAD atitude against anti-depressives... her body reacts badly... she has tried many)
[*]Sudden losts of "presence". What i mean is, she looses strength, equlibrium, willpower on a apice. This may be caused by low tension. usually when get up from a chair or a bed
[/list]

Diag methods attempted:

[list=1]
[*]TAC.. what should be called in english, Computed Added Tomography
[*]RMA, MAgnetic Ressonance
[*]Encefalogram... i don't know the word in english... (Portuguese, Encefalograma)
[*]Miaografy, this one too.
[*]Others i might have forgotten... it has been 5 years
[/list]

My mother has been diagnosed by a neurologist... with Parkinson desease. Shes taking a medicine called "Stalevo"... made of Levodopa, Carbidopa, Entacapone, 150mg, 37.5mg , 200mg ...

The current status is major paralisis... incapacity do be independant... Incontinance... she must wear those things the baby use (i can't remember how its written... its an absorbin pants) during night bercause with the use of Xanax, she won't wakeup to go to the bathroom. She crys... her body is full of hematomas (don't know the word here... bruises from falling and hitting things) all over the body... some of the size i've NEVER made when i was a kid ( we're talking the size of ball of handball... 10-15 cm's diameter )


I fell myself running from Hospital to hospital.. from psicologist.. to psychiatrist, to neurologist... i've tried even acupuncture... with no significant results... From diagnosis to diagnosis... each department just.. throws the problem to the next one... The last neurologist said it was PArkinson... ordered for the levodopa... but won't dare write a letter stating my mother has parkinson.

I'm willing to provide ALL diagnostis (including Magnetic ressonance, Tomographies... be it high detail scan, or digital support (the magnetic ressonance came in a slide type and a CD)), Answer ALL questions you may throw... everything...

My mother is 55 now... menopause as come... she as worked all her life... she endure the ditadure... the famine... the hard work from as low as 6 years... she NEVER left me fail anywhere... i am now 22.... and i owe it all to her. during this 5 years after the divorce... she went to school at night... 40 km of several public transports... to take a professional degree... she... although being in a depression.. (which now is in a advanced degree) always suported us... always cherrished for us.... me and my sister... I saw my mother slowly fall helpless... i've left school... i've tried school at night with no success... now i work from 5am to 15h pm... in a logistics enterprise... my sisters gets up everyday at 5am to go to her "work" as Ocupacional Terapist ... she enters at 8...takes 3 hours to get there... I come here with a word of dispair... not for me... i can't take this ther rest of my life... its my fault in part... i should have suportted my mother when she needed... but for my sister and mother which disease is slowly killing them both...
i don't remember sleeping for 6 hours straight...

I beg forgiveness for my bad english... i was a top nocht english studdent in high school... but thats long ago...
Every word of advice... every reply will be taken with sincere gratitude for just reading all of i have just written.

Please... help my mother...
