PD & joint pain

I am new to PD - early symptoms, left side. Recently began to have pain in the left thigh/hip joint. Does PD affect joints or should I look for another cause?

Parkinson's affects everything. not just movement. Give your neuro a call and see what he has to say.
There are none so blind as those that will not see

Pain is much more common than people realize. Discuss with Neuro and see what he/she suggests. In addition to some pain management through prescription meds, massage can really help with that as well. Soaking in a nice warm tub feels good too!

I have pd and I have pain from rigidity. It is in my neck, top of arm and feet and my hip (on and off) all on my left side which is the pd side. The meds usually relieves the pain and if I forget to take a pill that is one of the first symptom that comes back until I take my meds.
