    Hello and greetings,

    I am a full time carer working in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England.

    One of my new clients has Parkinsons and two days ago we had difficulty waking him up to the extent we thought he was losing his fight to live.

    My question to the more experienced members is, is a symptom of Parkinsons an inability to wake normally? I believe Parkinsons affects the brain. Does its affect mean that a sufferer will simply take longer to wake up sometimes?

    We tried to rouse him a couple of days ago but he would not stir. He has since related that he could hear all of us; doctor, wife, both carers, etc.

    Hi Darren

     

    Wow, that had to have been frightening.   I have not heard of that as a pd symptom.  What does the doctor say?  Possibly aside effect from the medications?
