I was diagnosed with Parkinson's a couple of month's ago. I have quite a lot of pain in my joints (shoulders, knees) and muscle pain in my affected leg and back. My neurologist says he has not had any patients with the amount of paint I have which leads me to question if it is the Parkinson's or something else. Please note my neurologist added carbidopa/levodopa to my daily meds and the pain went completely away for 1 month but unfortunately it is gradually returning.
