Balancing regular exercise with the effects of nOH is possible.
Neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (nOH) can affect one in five people with Parkinson’s.
The good news is that nOH is treatable. The goal of treatment is not to achieve normal blood pressure values, but rather, to reduce symptoms of nOH and improve your quality of life.
nOH is caused by dysfunction in the autonomic nervous system and causes people to feel faint when they stand or sit up.
As my Parkinson’s progressed, I started to feel lightheaded and lost my balance often. I even fainted occasionally.
