I loved the company, our sometimes black comedy like the time one of the cyclists was headed to the floor and the instructor made an incredible save, cradling his head. The rest of us erupted into clapping, hi-fives, whistles and catcalls, mystifying other gym rats.…[Read more]
Just a data point: My blood pressure has been on the low end most of my life. Never had problems with dizziness or fainting, before or after PD diagnosis (October 2013).
