Topic Numbness in fingers Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

Just a quick question. I have done extensive research to no avail...Carl keeps saying his fingers keep going numb. Yesterday, he added that his feet seem to be "bigger"...saying his shoes are too tight and hurt. He exercises and is active, has no cholesterol or heart issues, maintains his weight, etc...no new meds...

Is this a PD problem? He sees his neuro in December, but saw his primary care two months ago...everything was fine...

Bens gone up a shoe size - swears it's the Parkinsons.

My husband has numbness in his feet and toes. They did nerve tests and told him it is peripheral neuropathy. His neurologist says it is PD-related.

There have been several studies showing that the incidence of neuropathy is higher in PD patients.

For quite awhile I've had numbness in feet and toes sometimes up to the knee. Also dx'd as peripheral neuropathy. Tell Carl to watch or pay attention to walking. With numb feet we can't tell if the ground is level or rough at times.

Thank you all for responding and giving a name to what is going on. I read these posts to Carl. He said, "Hmmm...ok" At least he listened!

Saw him flexing his hands in pain this morning, so I guess we will have to contact his neuro before December.

I listened to a program on NPR last week about a pain cream devised by an pain specialist at University of Dallas. This is product with resveratrol and salicylic acid from menthol that resets nerve responses. He is sending out little free samples as he is now sold out due to the NPR program. I have ordered a sample and I am going to use it myself and and my PWP. Its called Teds Pain Cream with Resveratrol.

You can google it and order directly from him or through Amazon. Again he is sending out free samples at this time. I get nothing from this product. But thought it might be of interest among some here. You can go to NPR and listen to the program also. It was quite interesting.

I will let you know if it helps my dear hubby have less pain.
