Sleep .........trying To Sleep With Tremor
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

Has anyone any other tips? Or does this help anyone?

My left hand tremor troubles me at night when I try to get some sleep. I take a slow release madopar capsule at bedtime which takes a while to work. However, I have found that by relaxing as much as I can and counting down from 300 in my head and breathing deeply....it seems to still the tremor. I then think of anything except my PD.

Do You Find That Different States Create Different Symptoms With PD?
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

I live in MN and do have dizzy spells and headaches with PD. However, traveling to Mesa, AZ I am dizzy for at least 6 hours of the day and severe headaches. Do others find different states cause different reactions and symptoms with PD?

Understanding End Stage Parkinsons
A MyParkinsonsTeam Member asked a question 💭

I am a caregiver to someone with Parkinsons. I am trying to learn and be knowledgeable in all aspects of this disease, as being a caregiver, I want to know what to expect as time goes on. I do have one question that I am trying to figure out. I have read that Parkinsons in of itself is not a fatal disease, so, if that is the case what is "End Stage Parkinsons" - it sounds like end stage Parkinsons is terminal - so then it would be a fatal disease. I guess I am missing something - can someone… read more
