Tremors and shaking with pd

So....given the physical effects of pd, i have also noticed that if something is or could be stressful or upsetting to dad, he starts shaking and having pd tremors. Should i assume its just a coincidental episode or can something upsetting really set this off?

What are distonia storms! Are they part of PD?

I had a strange feeling in bed. A sudden jolt of "electric" current ran through my body. It lasted probably 10-20 seconds. It really hurt. I never lost consciousness and it was not an hallucination. A friend, who also has PD, said it probably was a distonia storm. Is that a thing? Is it a symptom of Parkinson's disease?

How do I know if I have PD

My dad has PD. I am 56 n for the past 5 years my hands shake but more recently my right hand shakes more and I have involuntary movements. Does this mean I have PD. I also have times where I can’t get the name out of my mouth

Laughing yoga

Has anyone tried laughing Yoga. You can Google it to find out what it is all about. My wife and I have been attending sessions lately and it is surprising how great you feel after the 1/2 hour session. Here is my review of a book that was written by the Doctor who had started it in India.

Sinemet What determines if you should take the extended release form?

I am taking Sinemet 25/100 mg. two tabs three times a day. I find the evening dose keeps me awake at night, if I take one tab at 7 pm and one at 11 pm I sleep better.
