Having terrible trouble with my feet

Hello everyone, just looking for some advice. I was diagnosed with PD in 2020 and have had trouble with my feet since then. It is ok when I am up and about but at rest they seize up and are so uncomfortable, it feels as if there are creepy crawlies under my skin and this is accompanied with numbness. I have had heart issues in the past and am wondering if there is any connection? I also have vey bad restless legs which are a torture and would appreciate some constructive advice. The doctor suggested Gabapentin which seemed to work for a while but not great. I have also restlessness throughout the day so all in all my quality of life is zilch. What I would give for a little respite!

Your feet symptoms sound like Peripheral Neuropathy. It could be caused by levodopa. Go see your GP and ask them for blood tests, and nerve conduction tests.
