A week or so ago I had trouble with my legsr with out help.

I would get very dizzy and disoriented when I stood up. My husband had to help me get to other rooms or I would use walker. I was in lot of pain too. I eventually got better. My legs feel stronger not totally weak. Anyone have this? Is this part of Parkinsons?

Any help would be much appreciated!

He shuffles his feet, get's fatigued easy and his judgement is not great (although he still drives). We are so excited about this trip and want to help him be successful. Any advice is greatly… read more
