Is there help with stiffness of the joints for Lewy Body. MY husband has Lewy body was what the doctor said it could be.

Hi Dianne,

I'm not a medical expert, and so can't answer your question. The Lewy Body Dementia Assocation ( might be able to help you out, though - they are a great source of information.

Good luck,



Is there a way to physically diagnose LBD?

Mona Johnson

Hi Claudia,

Take care,
