Sorry for the delay in getting back. Started taking daily dose in six divided doses which has helped. Also went to an orthotist and she gave me a strapping that helps when i go for longer walks. She wasn't so sure the Walkaide was the thing for me.Seeing neurologist in a couple of weeks so will discuss meds with him. Was over in UK last week and met someone with similar symptoms who did well on Ropirinol only for about five years, wonder now if I was wise to go straight onto L dopa as my neuro advised. Might see about switching over.
BTW I think you're a great support for so many of us earlier on in the PD journey so thanks again
