Can anyone suggest anything to make my walking smoother. I was dx in December and put onto increasing doses of sinemet 12.5/50 up to three tablets three times daily. I went onto the CR ones for a short while, but they didn't appear to suit me, so I am back on three tablets three times daily.
I have had a couple of collapses when my knees gave way and have now bought a walker with a seat. But my walking is very stiff and rather jerky, which I am sure is fairly new. There is a tendancy to shuffle, but I can stride out if I want to, leaving me exhausted. OK, I am 84, but would welcome any suggestions. Should I try increasing the sinemet?
I am on steroids for Temporal Arteritis, but don't think it is related to this.
My next hospital appointment isn't until September.
