    What is this "walk" you speak of?

    I imagine this walk is a gate that has hesitations, diminished confidence, pauses, varying directions from the presumed path. I feel that the choices provided made light of a serious and increasing problem is insensitive to to families that must endure this cruel condition.

    if they constantly walk like they just forgot something, then they probably do. Or not. If they walk with purpose, then stop, look around, walk the other way, then stop again, ask someone for directions, walk with purpose again, then stop, scratch heir head, then walk the other way, then eventually just stand still, then yeah, it seems likely. But, honestly, I do that.

    My answer is just YES. I don't like the sarcastic words with it. Alzheimer's is not anything to be made fun of. I went through it with my husband. Early onset Alzheimer's. His walking changed before his diagnosis.

    Yes. As the article says, a change in motor coordination is "the miner's canary." It's just an objective observation, which you've confirmed by your own experience.

    Hope you and you H are doing very, very well. I wish you peace, health, and conviviality.

    SO sorry to hear that.

    I lost my Angel nearly 3 years ago.....It's still very hard. It's like an amputation, isn't it?
  • Mariann... RevBH 2012/07/18 02:02:38
    Marianne723
    Yes, it is. My husband was a very robust man...always doing something, very loving and then this horrible disease set in. It didn't help that the vulture doctors put him on meds that he wasn't supposed to take in his condition. In the end it was a blessing that God took him, but we miss him so much. So sorry about your loss too Rev. My daughter and granddaughter will be walking in the Walk for Alzheimer's cure in Sept.

    There could probably be other effects on motor skills, such as eating, talking, writing, etc.

    It states you may have Alzheimer’s. Hell I may have Parkinson's or Krone's but I am sure I have CRS. That little report says a lot about nothing. Now who are you, what do you want and why do you keep bothering my inner being?

    Ah early signs that makes more sense....just a person's walk when they are 20 is a little silly. People change their walks so that isn't accurate, but early warning signs, I believe that.

    Seeing as its neurological, sure. That's why stroke victims limbs get affected. The brain is like the body's hardrive. I don't know if that makes sense.

    I've yet to meet grace, and I'm random in all ways including walking, so I doubt anyone could tell if my walk meant I'd get Alzheimer's. They would be able to predict if I'd stumble into things...which would be much more helpful. Less bruises.

    Considering Alzheimers is a brain issue, perhaps the affected parts are near one's parietal lobe (used for muscle movements), is being zapped a little, and somehow influences your walk.

    Anything that can help identify it is fine with me. An identifier may be a clue to a cure.

    If your brain controls your motor skills, why couldn't your walk be involved?

    I see some people walking that makes me think that they believe nobody can see them. Mostly the ones that forget to pull their jeans up all the way. They shuffle to keep their pants up.

    The brain is the largest muscle and the brain control all humans mental and motor skills. Alzheimer's,a disease marked by progressive loss of mental capacity. I do believe all of your mental and motor skill are effect by the disease,speech,walk,reaching,... earring,all deteriorate over time. If your walking; is off balance,there a possibility you might have Alzheimer's. The study is right!

    Yes. My husband passed away last Sept. from early age Alzheimer's. It is so cruel. I hope none of you that are making sarcastic remarks ever have to go through watching a loved one slip away from this cruel disease. Yes, the walking does change at onset. I noticed that with all the other changes. Not too long after he was diagnosed, he couldn't walk at all, and I had to watch him deteriorate for 4 years. It is so heartbreaking.

    I hope you don't think that I am being sarcastic, this is an awful disease!

    I have two Uncles who have died with it!

    It was only when I took a psychology class recently I learned what was actually happening.

    I am very sorry to hear about your husband!
