My father has had Parkinson's for over 4 years now. Nothing is really working for him. He doesn't shake, he's just slow and rigid with "freezing" episodes. Now he's starting to have blood pressure problems where his blood pressure goes really high and then really low to the point where he blacks out. The doctors are saying he may not even have Parkinson's or that he has it along with something else. They have no way to tell and no options for help. I understand the problem with lack of treatment for Parkinson's, but I'm really concerned about the blood pressure problem. He's on meds for it, but they're not working either. I'm hoping someone on this site might have experienced something similar and found something that may help.
