Hi Teza,

I'm sorry to read about your fall.

You can read a bit more about falling and Parkinson's here: http://bit.ly/28JWZCe

Just to remind you that you are welcome to give the team a call if you'd like to speak to a Nurse about this on 0808 800 0303.

Best wishes,

I normally do that after 10 pints not that I like a drink burp burp !!!!! 

Pits no funny but I can't help it take care Ian

Exactly the same thing happened to me. I remember heading for the library but not the fall. The next thing I knew I was lying on the pavement with concerned people around me. A paramedic was there but I don’t remember him doing any of the tests he described in the report which he later gave me. Because all these observations were fine he put the fall down to Parkinson’s and just drove me home, which was great. . But not remembering is strange, although I have been told it is common after a traumatic experience like a fall.
