She does not swing her arms, she has slowed down some (age 61) over the last year, her arms are heavy, legs feel heavy, and she doesn't blink as much according to the neurologist. If she is sitting in a certain position her leg shakes, but when she changes positions, it stops. We are waiting for an MRI but I'm wondering if this really sounds like Parkinsons. Also she is much worse this week, then last which I thought wouldn't be consistent if a slow progressing illness like Parkinsons.

My father is 85 years old, has parkinson s disease and just had his catheter removed after 6 months of wearing it. He fell and broke his hip on December 22, 2014, so has been in physical therapy with a catheter until today. He was told to go to the emergency room if he cannot urinate after 12 hours. Is there anything he can do to help him to urinate? He has taken flomax today, but is still unable to urinate. Please help.
