Advice from the experts. I have a question regarding exercise and parkinson’s. I read everywhere how good exercise is for people with parkinson’s. Every time I start exercising for a few days, my symptoms get worse and it appears to me anyway that the disease appears to progress. I will get new symptoms that don’t seem to go away. Specifically I try to power walk or ride the exercise bike. After exercising, the rest of the day I feel pretty good but the next day, I feel ok but the 2nd day after I feel worse than the day before exercising. I exercise 30 to 40 minutes at a time. I have been told maybe I am overdoing it? Does anyone else have the same experience I do? Or can this be specific to just me? Any responses would be great. FYI, I am on requip, amantadine & azilect. I do not take sinemet at this time as my doctor says it is too early to do this and I need to hold off. A 2nd question for the group if you can answer. Can exercise each day start to diminish symptoms overall or is that just wishfull thinking?
Thank you in advance,
