A burning question!

Hello everyone. I am curious to know if anyone has experienced a burning sensation on their body. About a month ago I felt a most uncomfortable burning on the back of my neck. The only thing that gave me relief was applying an ice pack. I get this sensation almost every day. I am wondering if it has anything to do with missed medication as I have been careless lately with taking it on time. Many thanks.

Pain related to PD is divided into five categories:
Musculoskeletal: pain that affects the bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. It can occur suddenly and be short-lived or long lasting and can occur in one or several areas. Someone with PD may describe this as aching or burning in their muscles or skeleton.
Neuropathic/radicular: chronic pain condition where the body sends pain signals to the brain, not caused by an injury. This sharp pain comes from a nerve or nerve root.
Dystonic: sustained or repetitive muscle twisting, spasm or cramp that can occur at different times of day and in different stages of Parkinson’s. Can stem from rigidity and dystonia.
Akathisia: causes the feeling of restlessness or inability to be still. An example of this outside of Parkinson’s is Restless Leg Syndrome.
Central pain: neurological condition caused by a dysfunction that affects the central nervous system and is resistant to treatment. This pain is usually sharp and burning with no clear cause.

Central pain is often described as a diffuse burning sensation and is not related to a lesion in the peripheral nervous system.
