I’ve been experiencing violent hot flashes.
Also hand sweating and a general heating up of my body almost as if I’m being warmed on top of a stove. I was diagnosed with PD in 2017 and take Carbidopa/Levodopa 25 100 with some success.
Has anyone experienced this symptom?

One woman in my RSB class does occasionally experience hot flashes and she says she is long past menopause. She always wears layered clothing to class, tries to say under fan blower and peels off her layers as class goes on. I have not experienced this, but I find I am affected by temperature extremes, more fatigue in hot summer weather and more shivers in cold, cold winter weather.
I know for myself, if I experience something unusual in my body, I tend to attribute it to PD LOL. Either that or age.

Thanks for the feedback. These are not your standard flashes of old. Good gracious even
my eyebrows get hot. I’m hypothyroid and see an endocrinologist every three months and he’s got my numbers the way he wants them but can’t help me with the heat
My heart has been checked out as well
I hope I get some more feedback on this site
But you’re correct I tend to blame everything on PD

Vic, I wish you luck,,,sometimes I feel it is up to us to figure out what is wrong and we are on our own to fix it. My sister always says doctors PRACTICE medicine. I think she’s right.
