Hi Muppet
good advice - i have recently restarted doing some weight, stretching and balancing exercises and have found it very beneficial.

I think exercise is very beneficial. I do some weights (2x a week) and bosu ball (2x a week) but the most beneficial are my morning stretches and a 1 hour walk (about 2.5 miles) every morning at 5 AM before starting work. When the walk begins, my tremor is quite apparent but 20 minutes later, it has disappeared. Mind you, I was only dx a little over a year ago so that might factor into the disappearance of the tremor. The only other symptom I have is a changing voice. I am starting to sound like a Phyllis Diller / Barney Fife mix, only much quieter. Thank goodness for speech therapy, another form of exercise!

As Oprah's trainer said, " We were made to exercise. We feel better. "

Best wishes.
