PD and leg pain
Am 67 male, told I have PD Oct 2012.
Neurologist has me on SINEMET® (carbidopa-levodopa) and Selegiline.
Told to take the Sinemet 3x day and Selegiline 2x.
The sinemet seems to keep my legs from hurting. After about 6 hrs, they hurt. When taking the sinemet I take at 8 AM, 2 PM and again arount 8 PM. My legs are normal up to six hrs after taking the sinemet. That leaves from around 2 AM to 8 AM in all sorts of hurting legs. Walking around seems to help, but can not sleep.
on my own, i started taking an additional sinemet around 11PM-midnight, that way no leg pain from 2--8AM. Still have problems sleeping, but at least the legs seem normal.
