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.

Re: Parkinson's Leg Pain

For the last several years I suffered from my left hip and knee pain. I spent many hours in physical therapy because X-rays all indicated normal bone structure. Then just recently I was diagnosed with Parkinson's because of my right side movement difficulties. Then it became obvious that my weak PD affected right side was actually causing my left side to over work and fatigue with resulting pain. So far my medication is helping both right and left sides.

Try physical therapy with sensitivity that Parkinson's can unbalance the muscles and cause pain and cramping.
