ive been taking carb/levo for about 3 years for diagnosed Parkinsons. Im 57 year old woman. I think I was misdiagnosed. Except for small shaking of my hands, I have no other syptoms except from meds. my question is what damage could the carb/levo be causing?

Thank you for your post. I had since changed doctors. My new neurologist discovered I had virtually no vitamin D. She also found a 2cm lump on my thyroid.  I am meeting with a surgeon December 24th to set a date for a biopsy

Like all drugs, Carbi-levo can also cause side effects. This could include anorexia, nausea, vomiting, low blood pressure, dizziness, chest pain, muscle cramps, body aches, itch etc.
If you are feeling some of these symptoms then please consult your doctor.  
Parkinson’s disease is one cause for involuntary movements of the body both localized and generalized.  The other possible causes are systemic lupus erythematosus or lupus, polycythemia rubra vera, anti-cardiolipin antibody syndrome, stroke or transient ischemic attack, thyroid disease, and disorders of calcium, glucose or sodium metabolism. Rare causes include Sydenham's chorea, Huntington's disease, and Wilson's disease. However, almost all of the above mentioned conditions cause numerous other symptoms apart from the involuntary movements. Brain stem or cerebellar disease including MS, spinocerebellar degenerations, vascular disease, and tumors can also be a cause. Pinched spinal nerve at lower cervical vertebrae too can be a cause. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
