My father was recently diagnosed with Parkinson's. He has the left-side weakness and hand tremors, he has difficulty swallowing, depression, nightmares, muscle cramps, etc. All of these things I have read about online. One thing, however, that has my mother concerned is that in his sleep he has full-bodied, quite violent tremors that shake the whole bed and last from 5 to 10 minutes. They happen a few times a night, and are seizure-like. Is this just another symptom of Parkinson's?
My husband tells me that i have tremors sometimes at night that wake him up. He has not said how long they last though. I have found that if i over do or i am tired that is when i have them, it is just your body sayin you need to slow down
