My husband and I both have leg tremmors but it has been diagnosed as restless leg syndrome. I hope yours is neither Parkinson's or RLS. We do take a Parkinson med for the RLS which doesn't always work. I hope I am not to negative.

Re: leg tremors just the beginning

PD can start in different areas. My mother had it and she noticed at first her strength was diminishing and then a twitch in her pinky. I was diagnosed in Jan 2012. My symptoms started in Sept 2010. I started to have pain in my right arm then my handwriting was getting smaller then a slight tremor in my right hand. In August 2011, my right leg started with a tremor. So in the beginning, PD can affect people differently but as it progresses it all becomes the same.

I have RLS and cope with it by walking off - really troublesome. What medicine do you take for RLS? Mine is just Parkinson medicine -sinemet. Hope it gets better: lenel

I have been on Mirapex since January 2012 and I take .5mg of Mirapex 3x a day. I see my doctor this Thursday. I believe that my meds need to be adjusted starting to have "off" times between dosages. Feeling more anxiety. Have Pain going down my right leg. This is so frustrating!!
