I'm new to the forum this is my first attempt at a post. My name is Kev I am 61 years old and was diagnosed about a year ago. It was a bit of a shock to say the least, but I have come to terms with it now, and feel a lot better now the drugs are doing their job. Luckily I can still carry on with my job as an Electrician, although sometimes I wake up and feel like doing nothing. The only thing I really suffer with is my legs, they feel as though they are going to give way and feel weak all the time, is this usual as now it's starting to give me backache. I am waiting to see the Parkinson nurse about it , just wondered if anyone else suffered the same and if there was a solution.Hope this is not to boring and hope tp post more in the future Kev.
