I saw 40 year old Godlove 2 weeks ago with a marked tremor, flat facies, difficulty rising from a chair and trouble initiating and stopping his gait. It appeared he had Parkinson’s Disease despite his relative young age. I started him on Sinnemet and Godlove came back yesterday with a huge smile on his face. He initially sat down on the chair and immediately bolted to his feet with an even bigger smile. He started bouncing around the room like a boxer warming up in the ring before a fight. He was so excited about the improvement he had experienced from the medication he had to demonstrate his improved mobility. Fortunately, a Pharmacist from Holland had just sent us the Sinnemet. It was the first time we have had the medication in the 2 years that I have been here.
