Parkinsons vs Fibromyalgia
aunt_sister posted:
I have been told by a Neurologist that I have Parkinsonisms, my Primary Care Physician tells me I have Fibromyalgia. Who should I believe. I followed a link on this web page for Fibromyalgia medications and was taken to a discussion on Parkinsons Medications. Are the 2 diseases' similar, do they have symptoms in common? I am confused about how to manage my pain. I would like to hear from a professional in response, please.
Mark A Stacy, MD responded:
Dear aunt_sister
It is not impossible for both doctors to be correct. However, I would suggest concentrating your care with the doctor treating symptoms that are most bothersome. That sounds like pain, and fibromyalgia.
aunt_sister replied to Mark A Stacy, MD's response:
Dr Stacy,
I would follow your advise except my problem is knowing which symptom is FM, and which is PD. The pain is in the muscles, joints, nerves from my shoulders to my feet, alternating. In the morning after abt 4/6 hrs sleep, I manage to ambulate without much pain for about an hour, then it hits like a train. In the meantime,my teeth, tongue, jaw, lips, neck skin all tremble almost constantly; my hands shake when I try to eat, my throat gets sore and voice gets softer and softer. I take neurontin, cymbalta, sinemet, requip xr, and a few other non-related meds. I don't know if I should fight through the pain and keep moving around or spend my days in the recliner or bed.
Thx for your reply.
