Hi everyone, I'm posting on behalf of my dad who has developed symptoms of Parkinsons extremely quickly. This time last year he was fine, and by now he has lost most of the use of his left hand and arm, has really weak legs, struggles to walk and get out of chairs.
The thing he finds hardest is the fact that he is constantly dizzy. Some days are worse than others. He has fallen over quite a few times because of it and can't get himself up because of the lack of mobility in his legs and left arm.
He was on blood pressure medication last year and at first it was thought it was the cause for the dizziness, but he's been on no medication for over three months now and the dizziness is only getting worse. He's still having tests and such because everything's happened so fast and he's only just received a diagnosis of Parkinsonism.
In the research we've done we've been unable to find any mention of people with Parkinsons as suffering from dizziness that's not caused by medication.
If any of you have experience of this, we would appreciate it so much if you could share your experience. If anything my dad would be relieved to know he isn't the only one.
