Hubby has a lot of freezing episodes, it helps to swing/sway or move side to side before trying to pick up leg to take a step. Enroll in dancing classes and check out Boxing for Parkinson’s. Both of those activities help with the freezing and balance issues. They’re fun, and you’ll meet some great people. And you can take a partner to enjoy it with

I have been diagnosed for over two years but have had Parkinson's much longer.. Tremors and gait freezing are not my big problems .I have had fatigue , dirrarea, and back and hip pain. I use a walker at home. I am 75 years old.I do run into things at hom. I don't see much difference on up and down times with the medicine. I will pray that your hair gets better.
