Burning legs and night sweats


#1

Has anyone experienced heavy and burning legs. This sensation seems to increasing as time goes on, and makes walking and standing very difficult. I also have night sweats which cause me to waken up and then have difficulty in going. back to sleep. I have spoken to both my GP and my PD Consultant but they seem to be puzzled as to the cause of this problem. I would appreciate any information on this

Possibly B12 deficiency?

Hi Bella14,

A warm welcome to the forum.

I thought you’d be interested to know that we have a ‘Sleep’ section on the Parkinson’s website which explores all the sleep related issues that people with Parkinson’s may experience. There’s a lot of information and advice which you may find very useful and we also have a helpline service where you can speak to a Parkinson’s specialist regarding the heavy and burning sensations in your leg. You can reach them on 0808 800 0303.

Do let us know how you get on.

Many thanks,
Reah
