    Sciatica Pain

    Dr. Okun I recently underwent DBS surgery (Jan 25 2017, Bilateral STN). I am doing extremely well and am taking zero Parkinson’s medication. My question relates to sciatica pain. I was told by my team that it was possible that my sciatica pain may be reduced by DBS surgery—they made no promises but said it was not unheard of; also, I’ve read in “The New Parkinson’s Disease Treatment Book” by J. Eric Ahlskog, PhD, MD that some sciatica type pain is related to dopamine deficiency and not lumbar issues. Since surgery, I have had no sciatica type pain at all. My question to you is just how common is this type of pain relief. I’ve scoured the intranet and found little about this phenomena; however, obviously some people are aware of it. Thank you for your input. Ken
