I was diagnosed in September this year. My symptoms are a stiff right shoulder and tremor in right hand. I also get a tight neck up about the hair line and sometimes waves over my head. Has anyone else jad this ?

I noticed when i was diagnosed my physical aches and pains increased especially my neck pain and shoulders including the tremors I noticed Parkinsons stiffness invades all the muscle groups depending on the day I purchased a shiatsu massager from Argos its perfect for the neck and backs of calfs it also gets into the shoulder region but be warned dont over use it or yu will suffer has its quite a strong massage Hope this helps
Thanks . I treated myself to one of these at Christmas and it does help.
Thanks Dave , I had picked one of these up and it has been useful when my shouldwr has been really tight. Youre rught it can be brutal. Lol
Yes. And also the front of my neck like I’m being gripped. Painful . It comes with breathing spasms too .
Does this sound familiar?
