      On some days, my dad wakes up feeling enthusiastic and strong. On others, he sleeps poorly and spends the waking hours in a state of exhaustion. How do you manage your low-energy days? Do you ever nap? Do you take a break from your exercise routine?

      I know the feeling.

      I actually force myself to go to gym or cycle, and that actually makes me feel more energetic.

      If I workout, walk slow jog or some type of movement, I generally feel much better and less sluggish during the day.  It’s a brutal feeling but once in a while I go for a 15 minute to a half hour rest, which usually brings me closer to my next medication and feel better eventually.  When I sleep poorly I always feel like crap during the day.  For me a good sleep and exercise is the key to having a better day, even a walk outside makes me feel better.

      Love to all of you with PD and all our friends and family who help us have a better day/week/month

      I have found nicotine to be an amazing help in concentration and energy both. But never through smoking. Nicotine in the form of gum or lozenges.. I recommend “Lucy Gum” or lozenges. I have also found that methylene blue is excellent for increased energy. The only real downside is a Smurf tongue. But if you are masking for Covid NBD.

        Strange, I’ve never heard of that before, but as we have slightly differing symptoms different things work for us.

      On low energy days I push to keep my regular routine; I find the more active I am, (within reason), the better I feel. While everyone will have different degrees and different lifestyles, walking up and down steps and keeping up my archery is both mentally and physically helpful in my situation

      I have found that caffeinated mints (comes as gum too) help.  Drinking a cup of coffee bothers my stomach, but I have no problem with these.  I use the Viter Energy brand that is online.  Their sample pack is inexpensive, and once I found I liked them, the offers available make the cost of these mints very reasonable.

      When I have a low energy day, I am useless. I’ve tried to push myself & break through the sluggishness which for me has always resulted in a physical accident, or messes to clean up because of my clumsiness. My low energy even makes it difficult to transfer & pushback in my wheelchair.
