About 6 months ago, my dyskinesia started getting worse, and I noticed I was starting to get a lot of neck pain.
I went to a neuro PT who said she thought my neck pain and stiffness were being driven by my dyskinesia and that I needed to reduce the dyskinesia before we could improve my neck. So I tried amantadine but because of its side effects I can only take 1 per day. And it doesn’t seem to help at any rate. So then I experimented with dosing of CL - minimize usage. But haven’t been able to find a balance that works. Now I’m experimenting with Rytary. No luck yet.
If I can’t eliminate dyskinesia, is there any kind of PT that can at least help reduce neck pain?
This is a major problem for me because beyond the pain, I was reliant on running and exercise as therapy. But with the neck pain, I’m lucky to be able to fast walk for 20 , max 30 minutes!
