i had and have joint and muscle pain before and after diagnosis.
it was one of the reasons i first went too my doctor other than the tremor, i have joint pain in the wrists elbow,knee, hip and some times my ankles
but my ankles that's usually more a swollen feeling in my ankles first thing and in my feet and toes which seem too curl under. My pd nurse tells me the ankle,feet, toes sensation is down too the loss of dopamine.
i have noticed lesser pain with my madopar medication when being on, but i can never accurately forecast how long being on is or will be
.the best way i can describe it for me, it seems too be like a battery, the more energy required the less battery life.
