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.
