    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Joint pain and burning
    monroe63 posted:
    Hi, I have PD, and I'm wondering if this pain that I have mostly every morning is related to the PD. My right arm and both my legs hurt and burn. The pain wakes me up. Thanks, Monroe50
    Mark A Stacy, MD responded:
    Dear monroe63,
    Pain affects about 30% of people with PD. If your PD is worse on the right side, this is likely at least partially, a parkinson symptom, and may respond to your PD medications. You may need to talk to your doctor about how to adjust the timing and dose of your drugs.

    Thankyou Dr. Stacy, I will talk to my doctor about this.
