shortness of breath

Shortness of breath results from a combination of chest wall rigidity and abnormal, drug-induced muscle movement.

I have gone through CT Chest and Lung XR and confirmed I have short of breath caused by Parkinson’s.

My medications daily are as follows:

9 dosages Prednisolone (Stiroid)
1 ” Nexium 40mg (gastric)

Kindly comment

Are you on any Parkinson medication? Parkinsons can cause the shortness of breath due to the smooth muscle contraction/spasm. If you are on any PD medication, this should help limit these issues.
Prednisone can also cause muscle cramps or pain, muscle weakness, and pain in arms, back, hips, legs, ribs, or shoulders. These issues can also exacerbate the PD symptoms or sometimes mimic them.

I also wanted to let you know that you should separate nexium from yourPD Meds by a couple of hours. Any medication that can increase or decrease stomach acid acid or GI movement, can alter the absorbyion time of your PD, and other Meds, also.

about myself

I feel proud that I am able to write a book about parkinson's disease without any medical trainning and knowledgeable about PD.

I feel proud I joined PLM Forum for the awareness of PD and able to discuss PD with PLM forum members all over the world irrespective of colours, language, culture, education,religion,practice. We are in one family.

I feel proud I am able to contribute my experience and knowledge how I confronted with PD emotional and non emotional disorders and slow down its progression.

I do not suffer from depression by positive attitude to life. I am not alone.
