      If bad things didn’t happen to good people (and good things to bad people), we’d all be good, but for the wrong reason: not from love, but from fear.

      I’ve been taking 7-10 grams a day (weight: 160, height 5’11) for about a month. One of my symptoms, cog-wheeling in my left shoulder, and associated discomfort when reaching up and out for something, or when flapping out a sheet when making the bed, seems to be less annoying than usual. I dissolve it in a glass of kombucha; perhaps  if I took it with water the effect would be less? Who knows? I’ll post back in a couple months with a progress report.

      What Andrew L. said. If your body is producing enough dopamine, then you don’t have PD; if it isn’t, you do and you’ll have symptoms, which can be varying degrees of tolerable. In my case, it’s Restless Leg Symptom, which would be hell without Sinemet and Mirapexin. However, “when you’ve seen one case of PD, you’ve seen one case of PD”: you may be the exception! Good luck!

      Hola Argya:
      Welcome to the list!
      Wow, twenty-one is really young for the onset of Parkinson’s. But everybody’s different and you may be lucky and have minor symptoms for a long time. One thing for sure is that there are no two cases completely alike.

      Michael J Fox had relatively early onset, I think in his late twenties, and he still has a very active and productive life.

      Things you can do that are almost for sure safe and may help are:
      Eat healthy. Fresh fruits, nuts and vegies, blue fish (mackeral, tuna, salmon), organic grains and cereals; avoid processed foods.
      Get a lot of exercise, do yoga.
      Get a blood test and be sure your level of basic vitamins, especially B-1, B-6 and B-12, C and D are at healthy levels.

      I’ve had PD for the last 5-6 years (I’m now 70).

      All the best to you and may your symptoms be light,
      Lou

      @frances: Only 200mg? All the suplements I’ve found on Amazon are in the 400-1200mg range.
