Newbie here and just curios what others think and looking for some peace of mind.

I am a 35 year old male with no PD in my close family tree (Great-Great Uncles both had it)

Anyways, Lately Ive had some on and off tingling all over my body. This sensation is not present everyday. I also Ive been having trouble sleeping due to Hypnic Jerks that wake me up whenever I begin to fall asleep (multiple times a night). Im extremely tired due to lack of sleep and my legs and arms are sore in the morning. My anxiety is also through the roof wondering whats causing these jerks. I have no resting tremors or balance issues. I can still run around, bike, play ball,etc.

I appreciate any help!

NorthStar, Welcome to HealingWell.com

Your symptoms do not sound like typical PD, but everyone is different. You might consider an appointment with a neurologist because it does seem like something is going on. Sorry I can't be of more help.

Best of luck,

Disclaimer I have no PD experience as a patient or care taker, but from what I know about the disease Im like 99% sure this is the right answer... Or at least this is where medicine will ask you to start first..

Please just take this as an observation and dont be offended...

Convo a doctor might have with you: How old are you? 35.... Very unlikely its PD... What are your symptoms? Tingiling that comes and goes, hypnic jerks that come and go, anxiety... Still sounds extremely unlikely... I think you're stressed and have an anxiety issue.

Where I think you should start so you can avoid hypocondria/anxiety written in your medical records is.... Check your diet, sleep environmeant, activity levels, and your mental health. Like look inside yourself and say am I eating the way I should be? Am I moving my body the way I should be? Am I sleeping in a good place? What stresses are in my life? Do I have friends and family I can laugh and be happy with? Try meditating and destressing! It helps you cope with symptoms... with or without PD...

Address those over questions over a few months and then see how you feel!

I used to get this buzzing sensation before I felt asleep and id jerk awake... I realized I was hyperventilating... Breathing my normal standing active breath while im layong down to sleep..

Good luck :)

I've been diagnosed with Parkinson's on 2008, at the age of 57. My challenges has been to learn to slow
down. I am multi task person , then began to get depress. Now after 8 yrs I learned to slow down. about a
year ago began to get painful ( CHARLIE HORSE). I remember my daughter once telling me, while we were in the pool I got these painful leg cramps. My young daughter suggested to take big slow breaths in and out. This really worked. Now I make a big effort to relax and do the breathing exercise.

I am also taking about 5 medication , one medication helps my nerve spasms is ( lyrica) 2x a day,
AZILECT once a day and this really helps my imbalance.
