: My grandmother is a sufferer of PD. Her feet just don't want to go anymore. She is constantly falling because she loses her balance and leg strength. Is this common for PD patients? Is is related to the medicine? Can anyone help?
Yes, this is a problem of PD. My father has the same problem and I sent him a new book out on Preventing Falls. Also, try this website for some ideas: http://www.cdc.gov/ncipc/duip/spotlite/falls.htm
