I was diagnosed in November 2019 with Parkinsonism. My question is after a day of activity I am so fatigued the next day, often sleeping later than I should considering my medication regime. Can anyone relate and if so, how do you handle it?

Does Stress Cause The Tremors To Tremor More?

Does Stress Cause The Tremors To Tremor More?

I did not think I was stressed until today when i was at exercise class. I had tremors so bad i could not exercise. I had gotten some disturbing news yesterday,Thought i was handling it very well. I had a mammogram and they found a "mass" biopsy on Mon. That is very unexpected. I'm home at the moment, and no tremors. I'm grateful. Life happens when you have other plans! Hugs Rosie

So I'm wondering if anyone has been to a podiatrist and gained some sort of enlightenment beyond: "You ninny! trim your calluses and cut your nails"
I have found it liberating(21 years into… read more
