Has anybody else found that their tremors are almost entirely gone from one part of your body to another?

I was DX over 12 years ago and for a number of years my tremors were in my right hand and arm. Over time it spread to all four quadrants of my body, but recently I have noticed that the tremors in my upper body are completely gone and now I have a foot tremor? that is very annoying. My right foot when at rest bobs up and down quite fast. It becomes painful and giveme cramps in my legs. I take 6- 25/250 carbidopa/levadopa, plus 3 Amatadine 100mg plus othe medications for cholesteroll and blood pressure.

Hello Larry33b,

I read your question with interest although you are ahead of me with your symptoms and length of time with PD DX, but I would like to share with you something I have just found out about. It is that leg cramp may be caused by a shortage of the mineral magnesium. Apparently, up to 80% of us are deficient in magnesium in western countries and it is vital to our good health. Also, I note that you are taking medication for other medical problems which some people claim can leach out magnesium from the body over time. May I suggest that you visit a website that addresses magnesium deficiencies and their symptoms. It is this: Dr. Carolyn Dean. Com. You will be amazed at the importance of this mineral in the workings of the body and may find help there.




Is this the same sort of tremor you had in the past? If it is different you are not describing dyskenesia are you?


I asked the doctor if he thought it was dyskenesia and he said no.



I've had a similar experience.

On presentation, nearly 8 years ago, I had a small tremor in my right hand. Left hand had no tremor. I had RHS rigidity, none on the left.

Now the tremor on the RHS is little worse, but there's a very bad tremor in the LH. Rigidity remains worse on RHS.



The same pattern I've experienced. Surprising, except for lack of rigitity here.
