orthostatic hypotension

Then at times my BP is VERY high as in 220/110. When it gets high I have been sent to the ER and they insist on meds to lower it which then impacts the orthostatic hypotension.

Physical Therapy for freezing and gait

I was just wondering if anyone has physical therapy or any type of therapy to teach them to manage freezing episodes.

I currently have to call someone for help and this keeps my home bound. Are there these types of people who understand Parkinsons? My balance and freezing keep me from being independent. Any suggestions.… read more
