Thanks for the query,

I understand your problem

All these symptoms that you have listed are mostly related to parkinson's disease itself. This is the natural history of the disease. The fluctuation that you have mentioned could be related to OFF period after syndopa that generally happens in patients with this disease. He would require further dose adjustment of his medications after careful clinical examination. Further, I will like you to tell that there is another option for treatment of parkinson's disease called as DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION. You need to consult a movement disorder specialist (Neurologist with advanced training in this disease) for the same. I am sorry that I do not know your location. If you are form India, the centres that will help you are 1. the Sree chitra tirunal center , Trivandrum 2. NIMHANS Bangalore 3. NIMS Hyderabad etc
