I think leg cramps are common with neurologic problems. I had them about 2 weeks after diagnosis and they were quite cruel; however, with a regime of mirapex and amantadine, they are now much less common and much less severe - maybe once every 2 months at 3 on a scale of 10. Before that, they tortured me several times a week at a 9 or 10.
You bet stress aggravates the condition. Like Semele, I now find myself being stressed by the oddest of things. For example, I can get stressed watching TV. Shows like Blacklist through The Good Wife can make my right hand lose control as the tremor reappears.
Has anyone encountered cold feet and hands to the point of being painful? I have them usually when I lie down and it has nothing to do with the fact it is -30C outside.
