WOndered if anyone cold help please........ A friend has advanced PD and has started experiencing new symptoms over the last few weeks.

It starts with a tingling in the feet which then changes to a feeling of her feet swelling. They get burning hot and then the swelling/burning feeling spreadds up her body.  She says it is hard to describe but is agony.  She loses all control of herself and slumps, dribbling etc.  It passes after about an hour.  It is not tying in with meds timings but wonder whether there is some correlation.

Please help

Hi Alfiebutton, I'm sorry to hear that your friend is experiencing these horrible symptoms. If you or your friend would like to talk this through with somebody, please do call our helpline on 0808 800 0303 and ask to speak to one of our nurses. (See www.parkinsons.org.uk/helpline for more info, including opening times over Christmas.)

We have a couple of free information sheets that may be useful:

I hope this helps. Does anyone have any experiences and advice that they can share with Alfiebutton?

Best wishes
