I've been on Ropinerol since January and have slowly increased the dose to 10mg. It's helping with some of the symptoms, especially fine motor skills, but I've had a couple of odd side effects which aren't on the list.
The first one, which I got almost immediately, is a burning and tightness in my chest -similar to when you're outside on a very cold day. Except it's no longer winter so it's not caused by the air temperature.
The latest seems to be a weird kind of weakness. It's very difficult to describe but when it happens it overwhelming and makes me feel really unwell. It's a bit like low blood pressure but feels more than that. I feel hot, nervy and very tired, and my tremor gets worse.
I was wondering if anyone else had experienced this - or any other weird side effects from it.
Of course, it could be the PD and not the medication but it doesn't sound like a common symptom.
