Hi, new to forums so bear with.

Hubby 7 years a sufferer is having real difficulties with dizziness and falling over. Blood pressure was low in November but now on meds for that and it is ok now. But still dizziness appears. Not just when getting up, he can be stood reasonably happy in the kitchen waiting for kettle to boil (sum total of his daily chores) and for no reason gets dizzy.

Been to gps about 3 times now and they keep saying it is Parkinson’s or blood pressure. Gave him one of my vertigo tablets yesterday and he was quite a bit better. Did a check on dr google and it didn’t say avoid taking madopar or rohipinrole so presumed was ok. Getting to my wits end as we just don’t know what to do.

Any suggestions?

Hi, sorry haven’t replied but as things got better didn’t come back to Parkinson’s uk! My bad I admit!

The dizziness still happens but I have got to say that increasing liquid levels really seems to make the difference. He always has a bottle of water with him or at the side of him and my regular comment is ‘drink then I want to ask you something’!

Things a bit grim today with the flu and vaccine booster but I am sure it will all settle down in a few days
