Hi Any thoughts or experience with this. My husband on occasions has recently started thinking he’s going to fall back whilst on loo (with raised seat and frame) and once or twice on the sofa and ends up like a plank, absolutely rigid unable to move with hands holding onto the frame with iron grip. There’s a raised loo seat behind him and the cistern so there’s no way he can fall back. I’ve done a google search which suggests exercise which he does anyway … 45 mins of his physio exercises and we walk/garden. I’m trying to explain there’s no way he can fall back.

Hi @rhodes, :wave:

I’m so sorry that your husband is going through this - many members have had similar experiences with vertigo and rigidity so I’m sure you’ll hear from some of them with their own advice. In the meantime, we have information on rigidity including what people can do to improve it and the treatments available for it.

You can find this information here: https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/information-and-support/rigidity

I hope you find this information helpful.

Best wishes,
