I’m an eighteen year old male college student. For the past week, I’ve been experiencing varied amounts of pain on different parts of my body. At first, I had neck pain since last Tuesday, which, at first, interfered with my ability to move my neck. However, it got better over time, and by this past Saturday, I got over that pretty much completely. That Saturday, I experienced very minor shoulder aching, much like one would feel after a workout, but that aching was gone by the time the day ended. On Sunday and Monday I didn’t experience any pain whatsoever, and now, today, I’m experiencing very, very minor arm aching that only is really noticeable when I move it. I’m not exactly sure what’s going on and why pain keeps cropping up in these different areas, and it worries me. Some things to note are that I don’t feel tired during the day, the pain isn’t symmetrical (only one limb hurts at a time), and right now the minor arm aching is the only thing present. What might be happening?

This is not typical for Parkinson's disease. I would consider seeking an opinion from your general doc and a neurologist. There are many explanations for this type of pain, but you should be seen in person for diagnosis and management after a complete examination. Hope you feel better.
