    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!


    Yours in health,

    I am new to this whole PD issue. I was just diagnosed and having been having symptoms for a few years. I want to know about the shaking inside. It feels like restless leg syndrome in my whole body. Is this normal

    Yes, it is very normal. I take meds and that helps and now it only happens when my meds are wearing off. Good luck to you and welcome to the parkie world. I try to be grateful that we have a disease that gives us time and the ability to make decisions of what will help and what will not help. Most people with diseases do not have those most important elements.
