I know the leg jetters and definitely balance are symptoms of PD. The symptoms with PD evolve and come and go until they finally stay for good. That was how it was with me anyway. When you lose your balance does it feel like someone is pushing you or pulling you off balance? That was what it was like for me at first until I was told it was part of the pd and now I realize why I am unbalanced. Losing my balance is part of PD and the meds do not help that much that is why it is important for me to exercise. It is not important that I lose my balance what is important is that I can catch my balance. Exercise really helps with that part. Good luck. Let us know.
