Continuing the discussion from Stiffness On Waking:
I have been diagnosed 8 yrs, I am now 70, over the last 18 mths I wake every morning with really painful stiffness, my back, upper arms, hands, legs and even my elbows! Actually getting out of bed is torture . Initially the stiffness would lessen as I got moving but recently I’ve found it just stays all day…it feels like I have tender spots particularly the front of my thighs and upper arms. Is this just the way it has to be or might additional meds help?
I take :-
25mg/100mg Sinemet Plus x3
Am wondering if I need additional medication to help with this but am reluctant to increase . I haven’t seen my consultant for
18mths although I have contact with the PD nurse. Anyone out there have similar symptoms and found increased meds made a difference? Any comments appreciated.
