"medication has helped my Parkinson's disease"

About: Derriford Hospital / Neurology

(as the patient),

My reason for seeing Mr. Edwards was that I was shaking so bad, my wife was having to shave me, as my shakes are so bad- My wife is writing this for me.

Since taking 4 Madopar 125g a day I can now shave myself without cutting my face.
