Pain in hip joint


It's not there all the time but a few times a day ,especially if I've been walking

anyone else have this problem????


Yep. Makes you want to give up on exercise




Hi gcy

Yep, I have had hip pain and still get it but not so often. Was told by the GP it was bursititus, an inflammation of the bursary gland that are found in your hips joints and shoulder joints etc.,Had physio on this and they used a machine similar to a tenns machine. It worked to a certain extent, the other option is a steriod injection if it gets too painful.




hi gcp  had this problem on and off for six month three month before being diagnosed.  it started for me when  i got out of the car and put some weight on it and it gave way on me. Then when I am on my feet alot it gives me some jip. If this is anything to do with parkinsons I am not sure.


Hi gcy

I often suffer from hip pain when walking and sometimes if I lie on my side in bed. On one occasion it felt like something in my hip snapped as I was climbing the stairs. I looked on the internet and found that this kind of thing can be brought on by walking with an abnormal gait. There's nothing more abnormal than the Parkinson's shuffle!





Hi gcy......yep i'm another hip pain sufferer!mr greenmine was originally from 3 fractures to the pelvis 20 years ago after being hit by a taxi abroad. Since then i've had an epidural, steroid injections, lots of physio and have worn a TENS machine regularly over the last 15 years. It does take the edge off plus strong painkillers when needed. I think i get more pains since having Parky! especially in th neck and shoulders, steroid jabs didn't help that but i had an MUA which made a big difference to my mobility. You feel so many symptoms with PD and meds also and it is difficult to decipher what is causing whateye roll

Yes i have pain in my hips and back when walking , but recentley my physio sent me off to orthotics who gave me a splint to wear on my foot when i am walking and i have to say it has really helped me  i still get tired when i am walking but no whwere near as much pain in my hips as i get when i am not wearing the splint , i was walking with a abnormal gait due to a few issues and my foot dragging when i was walking but the splint really helped and my physio was really amazed about how much improved my walking was with the splint .


I have an almost permanent ache in my left hip, will be interesting to see if anything changes when I start my meds



Thank you all

as someone already said there are so many different symptoms it's hard to tell if it's Parky or just getting older


Hi All 

I am having similar problems with my shoulder joint, It is really sore and uncomfortable when in certain positions or if I need to move it quickly. I am off to see the GP today (not sure if it is parkinsons related) but causing me problems now driving and sleeping.

Also I am having extreme pain in my right groin area I have started yogo but seeing no improvement as yet.

Any advice would be gratefully appreciated.



Haven't been on here for nearly a year now! Decided to have a look and see what's going on.........I too have had both terrible shoulder/arm problems and hip/groin problems........but I have no idea if they are/were Parkinson's related as I was suffering long before I was diagnosed.

I just wanted to say to Shefinn that the steroid injection I had in the top of my leg was nowhere near as painful as I was expecting and it did the trick, so if they suggest that, go for it! The physio did absolutely no ggod at all - in fact made me worse because I used to go into agonising cramp!



Hi All.......I too started with groin pain ,like broken glass a few years ago plus a frozen shoulder which cleared up after steroid injections on 3 occassions.....brilliant it helped so much. That was the left shoulder but when the right shoulder became extremely painful and started to seize up i tried injections again but this time it didn't touch it. As the months went on it became agony and i could'nt lift it, this time it felt different to the previous frozen shoulder and eventually i had an MUA (manipulation under anaesthetic) which sorted it!!!! but i had to do lots of exercises immediately afterwards with the help of strong pain killers....that was 2009, i religiously do my stretches every morning in the shower as i don't ever want to feel like that again. It turned out that that was all part of the Parkinsons though i didn't realise then and wasn't diagnised until Feb 2013...4 years later!!! despite many other symptoms.

Warm wishes 



I have been wearing normal sandals for over 5 years now. Orthofeet shoes work great for my feet issues. I have tried other sandals, but I always come back to the orthotic shoes. They might not be the best looking ones, but for sure the most comfortable.
