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?
