Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s Symptoms Disappear in Himalayas

[20 April 2010]

By John Lindstedt

The always affable Michael J. Fox stopped by Live With Regis and Kelly last week, and he sure did have an interesting story to tell. Never one to be shy about his condition, Fox told an anecdote about his Parkinson’s symptoms disappearing while vacationing in the Himalayas. Fox said that by the third day, he hadn’t had to take his meds as much, and even climbed a mountain. How this happened is simply a mystery. Magnetic poles, maybe? Perhaps I’ve been watching too much Lost. Fox appears to be having a great time, even engaging in some self deprecating humor about his condition by saying Live‘s swivel chairs are a “fun ride” for those with Parkinson’s.
