Hi Trev, you will find it harder to tap your foot on the side you have the PD compared to the side that does'nt!!



Thanks for the reply when sitting I struggle to lift my foot to get started , Is this normal? Feels like my foots glued to the floor.


Hi Trev - the parkinsons make you legs feel heavy, like ton weights sometimes, especially when walking, but meds can help towards that. If you go further and try to dance you will probably find you have no co-ordination either! (sorry to say)
