I have a solution to the toe curling, put on a tight pair of sneakers. This prevents my toes from curling too much. If I have no shoes on or sandals, the curling is unbearable and painful but with sneakers it is ok. It works for me. Many times I sleep with my sneakers on to prevent the curling. I call them my bed sneakers. My husband just loves them!!!!! Bean
@A MyParkinsonsTeam Member. If you can find it, there's a question and a whole a lot of answers to something called "Anhedonia". That is a disease that sometimes goes along with Parkinson's but not Parkinson's related I don't think… Anhedonic people are unable to enjoy anything. I hope you moved past that because It is a terrible state to be in.The conversation was all about Anhedonic people with lots and lots of viewpoints from other team members. Very interesting. You can find that any many other question that you want in the Q&A section of this site. That is question and answer section.
You are my new team mate. I just added you to my team which is team Sterling. Welcome. Hope to talk to you soon. Sterling
worst symptom--apathy and no emotion
Hiking poles are great. Easy to use. In contrast, I think it's really difficult to use a cane properly. And hiking poles shout Hiker rather than Little Old Lady. Go for it!
My worst symptoms are balance issues/ and subsequent fear of falling, which I have done quite frequently, but fortunately no serious (hospital visit) falls as of yet. My Movement Disorders Specialist and my Physical Therapist both think I should start walking with hiking poles. I think they have convinced me. Have any of you tried this? I own a walker and a cane, but I am vain enough to not want to use them yet, They both shout "little old lady" to me. Albeit a lucky old lady to even be able to walk and have a choice of walking aids. Good day to all, BonnieD
