    My husband was diagnosed with PD in 2010. He is experiencing numbness, cold, hot, feelings in his feet and legs. It started with just the toes and just this month has spread to his entire feet and at times he feels it in his legs up to his knees.It's so bad that he can't sleep at night.
    He had a sono-gram of his lower extremities and his circulation is very good. He's being treated for pheriphial neuropathy He tried gabapendin which did not agree with him at all. Cymbalta has been suggested but I don't like the side-effects I read about it.
    Right now he's just taking Moltrin and Tylenol but it doesn't help much.
    Is neuropathy common with PD and can you suggest anything he can take to help.
    Thank you
