Guess what - meditation does not magically restore functionality of the cells in that part of the brain where dopamine isn't being produced. Why does it feel crappy without dopamine? Why is it frightening? Maybe it's the stiffness, or the not being able to walk properly or maybe it's the effect of remembering all those times you've struggled in your life without dopamine and all the bad feelings associated with(out) it? ... the tremor, unsteadiness, clumsiness, stiffness, uncoordination, the bad dreams, the fear of falling, the pain, the slowness...
Maybe that's the normal reaction of the brain/body when it asks for something it supposed to get, but doesn't which results in it not being able to physically do what it wanted to do.
What is dopamine's role in anxiety? In confidence? What determines it's release? Autonomic or consciousness? Physical need or psychological want? If the brain releases it because it likes the feeling, why doesn't it weigh the difference between the feeling of the negative impact caused by the effects of the physical impacts of PD? If you believe this shaking is being caused by my brain's want of more dopamine then why would it risk or compromise my physical well-being, my survival to get it?
