Muscle Jumping In Upper Arm Does Not Go Away

Muscle Jumping In Upper Arm Does Not Go Away

Hello team,
I have a question; has anyone ever had twitching of a muscle for instance in your upper arm and it never goes away it may twitch less often some days and nights it may even be calm for most of a day or two but for months and months on end it has not completely given up twitching and sometimes it Twitches so hard that you can just see it really jumping out under the skin and I wonder if any of you can ever remember experiencing that with your Parkinson's?

Is It Common For People With PD To Moan?

Is It Common For People With PD To Moan?

My husband has had PD since 2014. My question is: Is it common for a person with PD to moan a lot? My husband is constantly moaning and he says he doesn't know he's doing it!! He has different types of moans. I always think he's in pain or that something else is wrong, but he says "no". It drives me nuts some days 🥴. Does anyone else have this problem???
Thank you 😊

Suggestions 4 A Friend?

Suggestions 4 A Friend?

He has trouble getting himself off the couch from laying down position and bed. Body just freezes. Is there some kind of “thing” available in any store or online maybe with a built-in handle on a heavy sturdy side-table to grab onto without tipping? (Showed him the bed bar that mom used that slides under the mattress but he did not think that would help him. )

Neurologist Recommendations For The Myrtle Beach Area

Neurologist Recommendations For The Myrtle Beach Area

My husband with Parkinson’s and I just moved to the South Strand area of Myrtle Beach area and are looking for recommendations for a neurologist that treats Parkinson’s Disease. Need someone that is easy to talk to and isn’t rushed for time. According to his last neurologist who happened to be an MDS as well, credentials don’t necessarily mean anything, if the doctor is a butthole that you can’t speak to openly.

Does Anyone With Parkinsons Also Have Pain And Weekness In Their Arms?

Does Anyone With Parkinsons Also Have Pain And Weekness In Their Arms?

My husband was diagnoised with Parkinsons in 2020. He now has pain and weekness in his arms. His doctor thinks that he might have Polymyalgia and has referred him to a rheumatologist. I'm curious if anyone else has these same symptoms?

Cool packs or hot pads help a little and since I am on blood thinners can only take Tylenol. I am limited in what I can take

When DBS Appears To Be Working Well, Does It Also Increase Fatigue?

When DBS Appears To Be Working Well, Does It Also Increase Fatigue?

Had DBS surgery about a year ago. Been off all meds for 8 months. Movement has improved significantly but I tire out more easily. Wondering if DBS can lead to brain burn out.
