Parkinson's Movement

Swollen right arm

I am new here. I was dx with parkinson one and half years ago. My symptoms are mild tremor and small writing. I started to take medicine 8 months ago ( 1/2 madapor morning and night and one sifrol at night). My right arm does not swing when I walk. My problem now is my right arm has become bigger(swollen). I feel heavy at the arms when I walk. This started even before I stared taking my medicine. Does anyone have this problem? I also have severe ticklish dry cough at night when i sleep.

I have slight tremors once in a while. I heard that disease progresses fast for patients with slight tremor. Is it true? Pls give advice. Tq

You have noticed, or been told, that your arm doesn't swing when you walk. Now you are aware of this you can actively swing the arm to re-learn normal walking. Practice by 'marching' like a toy soldier to start with! Need to be doing other excercises too.


Thank you for the suggestion on arm swing retrain😊😊


progresses slower for patients with tremor.


Have you been to a GP for blood work, a health checkup recently? Is it possible there is something else causing your swelling, a second heath issue?
