Difficulty running


DBefore PD I was able to run up to marathon (26 miles)

I can now run very slowly until about 3. Miles max. At this point I lose control. I am not able to stop without holding on to something. Pd takes over and I find myself running faster than I can control

Has anybody experienced similar symptoms. And any advice


My apologies should not have. Selected young onset caregory


Hi @Zatopec,

I’m sure you’ll receive some advice from members on the forum, however, you may want to check out our exercise section on our website which has some really useful information. You can find this here - https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/information-and-support/exercise-progressing-symptoms.

I hope you find this useful.

Best wishes,


I too used to run marathons and with PD now run very slowly up to about 3 miles. But then I’m knackered and I stop.

Your running out of control certainly sounds odd to me!
