    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    The only area of medicine Dr Stach covers is Parkinson's.
    If you do not like the diagnosis of sleep apena you may want to get a second opinion. If you are over weighy you most likely have sleep apenea. This would account for your fatigue. If you are considered obease try and loose weight. This will help with the sleep apnea and fatigue. I can not help with the dizziness and involuntary movement of your arms and legs.
