| | 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!
