I wanted to share a positive experience I have had recently regarding swimming with Pd. Having swum from an early age, i competed to a high level until I was diagnosed at 47. Ironically it was swimming , or the inability to swim efficiently, which marked the onset of Pd as I found it more difficult to coordinate movement. Ironically this more than anything caused me to feel down whilst other symptoms seemed manageable through drugs. I was lucky to have an excellent team in Bath who after a few false starts have honed my medication ( only 21 pills a day!) after 18 months, so that I am swimming efficiently again. I now take cobeneldopa 5x 3 per day with pramipexole x 3 with additional tabs first thing in the morning and last thing at night! I am also a strong advocate of movement/ exercise to relieve stiff arms / legs! Despite having to stick to pill taking times I have greatly appreciated this development which has made me feel so much better! Has anyone else had such issues with swimming?
