Does Anyone Have A Problem With Their Toenails?
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

I've been having a problem with my toenails detaching from the nail bed. So far it's happening on 3 toes. The toe starts hurting. It feels like a blister but it's the nail detaching. It hurts for days & then it stops as the skin starts to get hard. So far I haven't lost a nail but you can see the separation. The shape of the nail is changing shape.

Need Additional Care And Would Like Your Thoughts?
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

I had to call the ambulance and he is now on day 3 in the hospital (Really upset with me by the way!). He can no longer be by himself in Independent living. We are here in The Colony, Texas and I am looking for other care options for dad. Do you have recommendations? This in itself will kill him.

Falling is scary. I just fell yesterday and fortunately I had someone to help.
