Are there differences?

Does Up/down stair or cycling cause leg freezing?

Does Sitting, walking and standing cause leg freezing?

Kindly elaborate

There is no rhyme or reason why some people freeze and some people do not? Why some people respond to cueing and some do not? Why some people's freezing responds to meds and some does not?

These are million dollar questions and we need more research to unlock their answers.

One potential answer is that PD is not one disease, and that there are many causes and variations....I know not very satisfying!
