7 Ways to Help Fatigue in Parkinson’s Disease

Fatigue is a common, frustrating Parkinson's disease symptom. It can feel both physical and mental, from lack of sleep as well as from apathy, another common symptom.

Pain from symptoms like rigidity can make falling asleep more difficult. Insomnia is also common with Parkinson's, which can make tiredness during the day worse. Insomnia and daytime sleepiness can also be side effects of Parkinson's medications.

In addition to talking with your doctor, making changes to your routine, physical activies or medication may help you feel more energized. Our community shared lifestyle adjustments that they've found helpful against fatigue. Share your own advice in the comments.
