Welcome to Our Parkinson's Place

I copy news articles pertaining to research, news and information for Parkinson's disease, Dementia, the Brain, Depression and Parkinson's with Dystonia. I also post about Fundraising for Parkinson's disease and events. I try to be up-to-date as possible. I have Parkinson's
diseases as well and thought it would be nice to have a place where
updated news is in one place. That is why I began this blog.

FoxFeed Blog Podcast: Sleep Disturbances in Parkinson's

 Posted by  Allyse Falce, May 15, 2017

Most people living with Parkinson's disease (PD) have experienced problems with sleep. While this is a common symptom, there isn't a one-size-fits-all approach to treatment. There are a wide variety of sleep issues in Parkinson's and each needs to be addressed in its own specific way.

In this podcast, Carlos Singer, MD, professor of neurology and director of the Parkinson's Disease and Movement Disorders Division at the University of Miami, talks about understanding and treating PD sleep disturbances. 

"You need to individualize the care," says Dr. Singer. "You need to try and understand the mechanism by which something is happening. And you have to approach things with a very open mind, not being very dogmatic, because sleep is so varied."

Hear more from Dr. Singer in our next Third Thursdays Webinar:

"Sleeping Well with Parkinson's" on Thursday, May 18 at 12 p.m. ET.
