Parkinson's disease affects everyone at different rates and different severities. 

How do you think your Parkinson's disease is progressing? Quickly or slowly?

Are you experiencing new symptoms or is it the existing symptoms getting worse.

Are the symptoms of your Parkinson's disease progressing quickly or slowly?

I'm lucky in that mine is progressing slowly. Right now I'm really having a hard time with sleeping problems. I struggle to turn over in bed. I shuffle or just stay still, and I have some vivid dreams that wake me, so my sleep is often disturbed. I'm thinking about asking my doctor to try clonazepam, but I obviously can't book an appointment right now and I'm not sure if they're doing phone consultations yet.

@parkinsonman I'm lucky too. Mine is pretty slow as well, but thinking back about how I was a few years ago and what I could do then compared with now is a bit frustrating. I understand the sleep problem for sure.

I'm just newly diagnosed with Parkinsons.  I have the tremor of my left hand fairly moderate right now.  I have a slight uncoorindated walk, Jenkins movements at rest, brain fog with difficulty planning and organizing my day,  problems swallowing, easily fatigued, and unexplained dizzy spells 4-6 times a day.  I've had these symptoms  about 6 months or so and the doctor and myself attributed to my bout wit Covid-19 because it happened at time of that illness.  But symptoms worsened.  So the Parkinsons diagnosis was determined.  Any suggestions, advice, etc, for a newbie at this disorder?
