Does Anyone Have Issues Wth Hallucinations Dealing With Smell?

Does Anyone Have Issues Wth Hallucinations Dealing With Smell?

I have, over the past few months, been having the issue of smelling smoke occasionally when there is none. Its subtle and will last for about an hour. I have had auditory hallucinations for about 2 yrs now but wasn't aware of any problems with this type of hallucination associated with Parkinson's.

Wheelchair

Wheelchair

Can anyone recommend a good portable by me wheelchair? My husband currently uses a walker but he is getting weaker and I need to find something that I can push him in. I found the ones that are both a walker and a transporter on Amazon but the reviews make me shy away. They say its great unless you hit a bump while pushing and then the rider could go head first out. Also my husband is a big man and I will need to push him so that is also important.

The back wheels are probably the same size. The front wheels ask if they are all terrain ones.. somewhere around 6" or larger ones.

Parkinson's Pain

Parkinson's Pain

Has anyone ever experienced sharp pain in your hip area? This is something that is not constant, but comes and goes. However, when I have it, it can stop me in my tracks. It almost feels like aggravated nerves. It also seems to only happen when I move. If sitting or sleeping it does not seem to bother me. Does this sound familiar and what have you done to relieve the pain? Many Thanks!
