Vertigo: Vertigo and imbalance treatments are available. Some are over the counter, others are prescription based. Some could in theory impact your parkinsons symptoms so definitely worthwhile speaking to your physician about which ones would be best.

Talk w/neurologist: And get his advise as to which medication for vertigo would be best to take with your parkinson's medication.

Vertigo, thought of specifically as a rotory or pulsive sensation, is not generally a symptom of PD. Lightheadedness, on the other hand, sure can be, either from the disease itself or medications lowering your blood pressure. Be sure your PCP knows what you mean by "vertigo", and you may want a neurologist to think about that for you too, if not already.
