Symptoms of PD

Hi, I'm new here. I am 67, diagnosed 2 years ago. Right now I have trembling in my hands and taking L/C which has been working. I'm mostly wondering about some other things that have been happening. Does anyone have trembling in their legs? I can be just sitting here and my legs just start trembling. I also can't sleep. I toss and turn all night. I am also experiencing neuropathy in my feet. Have others experiencing any of these issues? Thanks.

    1. I have recently seen my doctor and my sleeplessness is due to the pressure of my bipap. It needed to be increased. I'm sleeping better now. The neuropathy has stopped. My doctor said that he didn't see it necessary to increase my meds right now. My symptoms are not debilitating so he wants to just closely monitor my symptoms and call him if things change.

  2. Thanks for this information.

    1. Hello... I too experience nearly the same issues. I'm 53 and was diagnosed with PD 7 years ago and the only symptom I had at that time was a left hand tremor. Last year I started having a tremor in my left leg and now I also have a tremor in my right hand. Carbidopa Levodopa is working fairly well. I too have recently been experiencing sleep disturbances and my neurologist has prescribed me a sleep aid that is working great. I am also experiencing neuropathy in the toes on my left foot. My neurologist performed a Needle electromyography which came back mostly normal but it verified that I had no specific nerve damage causing the neuropathy. So I still no definitive reason for the neuropathy cause as if yet but it was a god start towards figuring it out.
