freezing starting after dbsfreezing post-dbs
Posted 24 February 2013 - 09:31 AM
i have pd and also a friend who had a dbs about 5 years ago, he's been med free ever since by his choice.. he says he's starting to freeze more often and he seems to just accept this, not wanting to even try adding pd meds, says he got the DBS to avoid taking drugs.
he's participating in a forced exercise tandem bike trial so he's certainly not a couch potato and seems to have fairly good balance - no falling.. the only health problem besides pd that i know he has is high blood pressure. any advice i can pass on to him?
