Parkinson's report and prognosis:
I fast walk three miles (gentle hills in route) every other day. I have tremor dominant pd. I was dx three years ago. I take no medicines, herbs or dietary supplements... I have the traditional p symptoms with the exception of falling. My gait is somewhat affected by pd. I get around well, with only a hint of shuffling or instability. I recently started using an electric tooth brush. My right arm and hand is weak and my blessed wife has been cutting my meat into bite size portions. I do not know what beneficial effect walking has had but for now, it is my therapy. I am watching for the cure or treatment, especially ultra-sound surgery. Please keep me advised.
When first using an elect tooth brush, remove the clear protective brush cap. I did not. The elect brush made such a racket while I tried to brush my teeth (yes, I topped the 'brush' with paste) that I asked my wife to look at it. I thought I assembled it wrong. No, my wife did not laugh at me.
