Joints ache when I wake up

I was diagnosed 6 years ago. For the last few months I have woken up aching all over and can hardly move. I have to get up take my first tablet, co-careldopa/levadopa and sit for half an hour or so. Im wondering if this is caused by Parkinsons or Ive developed arthritis. Is anyone else like this in the morning ?

Hello Margs1 … As well as Parkinson’s I have Neuropathy & Arthritis. Up to 55% of Parky sufferers have Neuropathy. I take Amitriptyline 10mg a day & this has really helped my Neuropathy & Arthritis.

Best wishes

Hello Margs1 / All

I am new to this forum and wanted to follow up on your comments. I have been diagnosed 4 years with Bradykinsea. I am also on co-careldopa/levadopa which I take 2 - 3 times per day. I have in the past six months started to develop back pain which is largely ok in the day (or not so today) but when I lay down in bed i really struggle to get up and ache from my back to my legs. Wondering if there is similarities or others who experience this.

Also not sure if connected I have irregular pain in my stomach on right side below rib area. This has been going on for past few weeks.

Thankyou for any input
