I HAVE EXTREME FOOT PAIN AND SWELLING AFTER WALKING A SHORT TIME-10 MINUTES OR SO. I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH PARKINSON'S AND DYSTONIA IN MY LATE THIRTIES. I WILL BE 50 THIS YEAR. I AM CONSIDERING ASKING MY NEUROLOGIST FOR A HANDICAPPED PLACKARD FOR THE CAR. I JUST WONDERED IF ANYONE HAS HAD THIS PROBLEM. I FEEL BAD THAT I NOW NEED THIS HELP-NOW I AM TRULY HANDICAPPED.

Physiotherapy helps in PD that is what I have learnt from various sources and it also helps my father who is suffering from Alzheimer's and PD both.

My dad had PD and suffered a lot from foot pain. In fact that is really the only pain he complained often about. He did have a podiatrist make up orthotics for his shoes and that helped him tremendously. It seems that in one foot his toes would curl under and with the orthotic, it helped to prevent that. He also went for physical therapy on and off when Medicare would pay for it and that seemed to help as well. His podiatrist picked out appropriate shoes for him which also did help.

I suggest you see a good podiatrist to see how he/she can help you. Just a suggestion & I hope your foot feels better soon.

I see nothing wrong with receiving whatever help you can get be it a disabled badge or whatever. I have a blue badge for any car I am travelling in and also had a free bus pass before I was age entitled because of my pd. Why should it be a cop out? Get what you can to make your life easier.
