I have been a lurking reader for about a year now, diagnosed for about 18 months, decided it is time to join in properly, so hello it's me.
Hi Mosie and welcome,
Hope your well and managing your PD ok.
I hope you find the forum as supportive as I do.
Hi there. tell us something about yourself!! Are you doing ok with your PD?
hello spam. My main problem is cramped up toes on my left foot. I am taking Ropinirole, 6mg aday slow release. I can stretch and flex my toes when relaxing but as soon as I start to walk they cramp up. In the summer I can wear sandals or soft canvas shoes, but as the weather gets wetter and colder I have only one pair of soft suede boots that don't take the skin off my toes.
I have wildly erratic sleep patterns, but I live on my own so I just get up, push a dvd in the machine and it doesn't disturb anyone.
I had the toes thing, but not for years now, but cant remember when it stopped but it did.
My tremor is on my left side and I also get the cramp sensation going on in my left foot and toes, painful!
I was dx last year and have the toe curling thing on my left foot
all my probs are on the left side I also have vivid dreams and lash out
witch scares the hell out off my poor o/h
All the best Adrian
you say you got rid of the toe thing---- did it go of it's own accord or was it when you changed meds?
someone gave me a toe massage a few weeks back, it was bliss while she did it, she pulled my toes out to their normal length, but as soon as I stood and walked across the room it was back to scrunchies again.
I find the cramps are helped by large doses of calcium with magnesium; available from health food shops
