Is this a common symptom of PD


#1

Hi All,

I have a somewhat troublesome but sometimes amusing symptom. I do generally have joint pain in my knees and ankles which generally comes and goes but a pain/stiffness seems to have settled on a more permanent basis in my left ankle and front of my foot making walking really difficult. However I can walk upstairs like any normal person. It makes me laugh to be honest as it just seems so ridicolous.

Does anybody else have anything similar?

It’s different muscle groups used for the different activity. I bet you can’t walk downstairs with such ease
