My mother has been getting progressively weaker for the last year. She feels extremely weak these days, nervous, shuffling gait. She has gone from someone very active and involved to a sigificantly reduced quality of life.

We have been to internists and neurologists...diagnoised with hypothyroidism, Parkinson's Disease, no Parkinson's Disease, nothing neurological wrong, etc. She has been put on Synthroid for a while...did no good. She has been on Sennett for a couple of months...made no difference. All of her blood work comes back with nothing much out of line.

She is 78 years old, has had Type I diabetes for about 30 years.

Anyone have any ideas?
