My 75 year old husband has been diagnosed with PD this past summer. He has quite
a bit of pain in his left shoulder and arm but his one worry is not sleeping! From previous
messages I note that sleeping is one of the symptoms. He now uses a dining room chair
with arms which helps with getting up. He was always a sedentary person so trying to get
him moving is very difficult. Also the depression seems to take him over. We are seeing
a PD specialist next month - what should I ask for and how does one know how long they
have had PD?
