: : : I have taken Clonazepam for leg pain and cramps and until now the drug relieved the pain. Both legs get very painful and gets worse when I attempt to stand up. This just started recently and it prevents me from walking. Has anyone experienced this problem and know of a drug that might alleviate some of the pain? Bruce
: : Hi Bruce,
: : I to have leg pain. Mine is a deep aching pain. I do not know what to take for the pain. I take Xanax which seems to help some. Talk to your doctor about this. Mine prescribed Tylenol#3 for when the pain is to severe. I have not taken it yet. Good luck. I hope yo feel better soon.
: : Love, Mona
: Hi Bruce,
: This is the darn Dystonia.Bill has this.Knowing how to relieve this>I dont have no answers.I give Bill baby aspirin and massage,and moist heat.Hang in there.
To my parky friends, Thanks for the input. I think it is looking like the pain is caused by the tight muscles we get from pd. The Clonazepam dord help a little in relaxing the muscles, but I have a feeling the dose needa to be increased. At least, the pain is now mostly in the calf muscles. I exercised and stretched the leg muscles. The stretching of the calf muscles felt good. Pete, I don't have a clue about when I get the surgery. Everyone I talk to at the center doesn't seem to know anytthing about the surgery.It is really getting frustrating not even knowing a a specific date for the surgery. Appreciate the comments very much. Bruce
