I read on the internet about a new drug for Parkinson. It also said and hope to almost reverse. Replacing some of the negatives people have with this chronic illness. I remember it started with a B. New on the market for Parkinson. Can you helped me? I have had MS going on 14 yrs. No walking aides. Can't walk like before. Also I have a very bad scolosis. Came on so fast. Around the age of 50yrs old. Now, it is over 50degree. I did go to Rothman, U. of Penn. Penns hospital. I wished I had answers. My MRI is so scarring. Anyone who sees it can't believe it. Is there anything you can do? I would even send the results. Sorry for going on. Have a Happy New Year.
