Dear Friend,
I am not the best person to describe and explain the symptoms of PD. I recommend you direct your question to “Ask the Doctor” as the physicians are all neurologists who are Parkinson specialists, and can give you a much better explanation. My scope of practice is nutrition, and I will be happy to address questions in that area.

The PD can cause some rigidity in one or both arms. In this case, when walking, one arm or perhaps both do not swing freely. In my case, I almost had to consciously swing my left arm but it was not a natural swing. The arm almost hung motionless unless I forced a swing.

If I understand the second question, walking faster will not cause the affected arm to swing faster.

Hope this helps.

Thank you Rich! That was an excellent explanation. Wish I'd thought of that.
