Every night and morning for the past few months my husband wakes up very stiff and it is sooo hard for him to move. Walking is almost impossible. We talked to the doctor, his neurologist, about it and he told him to take two Sinemet when he wakes in the middle of the night to go to the restroom and then again in the morning before he gets out of bed. It really doesn't help. Are any others having this problem and what helps? He is getting sooo upset about this. Is this what happens when the disease is progressing?
