Hi everyone,
My name is Helen and I am a 59 yr old female diagnosed with Parkinson's in 2004.  No major issues until I woke up one morning with toe curling and ankle turning inward - horrible pain!  Had 2 minimmaly invasive spine procedures at Laser Spine Institute (complete waste of time and money).  I.went to physical therapy.  After a deep tissue massage I woke up with severe weakness in my legs and the following day I fell outside and slammed the ride side of my body into the side of my house,  since then I've had 2 visits to ER, X-rays, MRIs and some minor changes to my meds (I take Stalevo 4x / day and Trihexyphen 3x/ day).. I had an EMG test and woke up with increased pain and weakness in my legs (much like the symptoms experienced by mommaatialuv) - my toes are curling again and ankle turning inward...waiting to see if changing meds will help - next step is a 14 day stay at a rehab facility which I really don't want to do...

Any thoughts or suggestions?  Thanks.
