I am 54 years old and was told from the doctor last October that I have Parkinson. I am still working on improving my walk. I really have trouble with this and I even went to physical therapy to help me with this. I work as a food demo at Costco and I am slower but still do my job as best as I can.I even went off of my pills in December and boy was I in for a shock, talking about being a turtle. I really could not move very fast. Before, I was very fast in my walking and now it is a challenge for me..I am on 8mg of Requip XL which seems to help me.
