Question Parkinson's Leg Pain

My 87-year-old mother has had PD for 8+ years. She has been a crusader, always pushing ahead, exercising, etc. her doc says she is a poster child for his other patients....if they worked as hard as she does, they'd feel a lot better.

In the past few months she has been experiencing severe leg pain. She has a very high tolerance for pain, so it must be pretty bad for her to lay down. We massage her legs (Biofreeze, covered with long underwear) and a low heat heating pad, with pain relievers seem to help.

She is very active and frustrated when she gets sidelined by this.

Any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Re: Parkinson's Leg Pain

It is good she is active and does exercizing since that will help. Sometimes adjusting the medications can help. There might be other meds available that could help her

Re: Parkinson's Leg Pain

I have PD and have leg pain on my right side. It feels like a groin pull. Can't cross my legs (right over left). I have it now for a year and I have tried stretching exercises but it hasn't helped. So to relieve some of the pain (pain is still there) I take Advil or Alleve.
