  • Parkinson's has what seems as though your feet are glued to the floor- difficulty taking that first step. When the hands are at rest, they make a dough rolling motion with the thumb and forefinger. Your walking and balancing could be due to a number of things. I think I'd ask my GP and then a neurologist or someone that specializes in Parkinson's so you don't worry about it anymore.
