Hi, Forest123
If you are being treated with medications for PD, the feeling of lead weights may be a symptom of PD. However, I would not be likely to diagnose PD if these were your only symptoms. I would suggest you discussing these symptoms with your general physician.

Did you ever get a satisfactory answer to your question about your leg symptoms? I have the same problem. I followed the link provided by tommytt88 and was directed to a site written in Kanji (Chinese, I think); and I did not find the link to the WebMD Health Center on Parkinsons' , by Haylen_WebMD_Staff , to be especially helpful.
Thanks
