I can get dizzy just walking outside to the patio to put bird seed in one of the feeders. Yesterday I found myself getting woozy as I looked up to find the hook the feeder was hanging on and started to lose my balance. Fortunately, I was able to stabilize myself and not fall. Had I been in high heels, I would not have caught myself. This happens in spite of my efforts to practice balancing on each foot several times a day. All it takes is for the head and eyes to move too rapidly up or down and over you go - head over teakettle!
Oh there are tons of flat shoes and sandals that I could wear if I didn't have back problems and foot problems. That's a separate issue from the Parkinson's issue. You just have to make sure you have a good firm foundation on which to stand if you have Parkinson's.
