    Skin related issues with Parkinson's
    dneu757 posted:
    Hello, can anyone recall whether they had any skin related issues before they knew they had Parkinson's disease?

    On occasion, I have tremors in my left hand and some involuntary leg and arm jerks, however, I have had a skin condition that has been getting worse over the last couple of years. I believe it is plaque Psoriasis.

    I've wondered whether there is a link with my skin condition and Parkinson's disease.

    I welcome your comments!
