Pain in Parkinson's


#1

Hi my name is Tricia - I was first diagnosed with Dystonia 10 years ago - this has progressed to Parkinson's which is at stage 5 - I take Madopar - Sinemet - use Neupro patches and Buprenorphine patches - meds have helped with the shaking but now the pain is almost unbearable and the Bradykensia affects my breathing which is so scary - can anyone advise me on what further options are - I didn't realise that Parkinson's caused so much pain x
