My husband has had bad pains since April and I have been the doctors with him a few times but nothing has been done, they said it was stiffness due to parkinsons, sent him to physio and that made him worse last month I had had enough of this it seems no one wanted to sent him for a MRI, the physio said i should ask his parkinsons consultant but trying to get an appointment at the Walton Centre is impossible they said I should ask our GP to write to the consultant, have you ever heard of anything so stupid. Anyway I did demand an MRI and low and behold my husband has multiple fractures and a bulge around a disc. I am annoyed this was not found earlier Tom has been in so much pain, GP is now testing to see what the cause is, up to now there is nothing in bloods or urine, we are waiting on Bone density.
Can I ask can someone with PD have fractures like this because of the way they tend to stoop, the physio still gives Tom light exersize and we all do try to make him stand up straight but I worry that this might not be good for him if his bones are so rigid perhap phsio is making the fractures, he has not had any recent falls.
Anyone out there had same or similar problems
