I have been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in July 2012. Over the last 4 and a half years the deterioration in my condition has been quite fast. I experience severe pain in my shoulders stiffening of my arms and legs, I lose balance frequently and tend to fall backwards without support to my back. 1 doctor said that it is due to reduced postural gravity index.
Few doctors in the last year that I have consulted have ruled out the possibility of performing deep brain stimulation in my case.
I have heard about stem cell therapy to cure Parkinson's disease and that trials in animals is successful. What I want to know is weather there is a possibility of a cure Or improvement in the conditions with the help of stem cell therapy. Is there any doctor or Hospital in India that performs stem cell therapy treatment for Parkinson's disease? If yes will there be any side effects?

Lost faith on current docter. Need help in identifying the correct doctor.
Out of the blue, I experienced an episode of seizure lasting 2 mts for the first time in life in March 16. Was hospitalised for a day. Treated by a Neurologist. All reports Ok except EEG with mild deviations. Stress was identified as perhaps the trigger. Was put on medicine Eptoin 100mg (1 x mor & 2 x eve). After 6 month evaluation my Phenytoin level report put the figure at 6.4. My dosage was increased to 150 mg (1x alternate mor & 2 x eve). Latest phenytoin level was at 6.4 again. Currently I am suffereing psychological side effects such as severe anxiety, over emotional, loss of confidence, low risk appetite among others.
I have lost faith on my current doctor. He is rude, over confident and more importantly, his verification process on your site is still pending. Could you please suggest what qualifications am I to look for in a new doctor who can understand the problem and advise accordingly.
