My WWP experiences intense pain and discomfort that she finds difficult to describe in her legs, several times every day. Mostly accompanied by cramping, both upwards and downwards, of toes, which makes walking very difficult and sometimes impossible.
She had DBS surgery 16 months ago, but this has not proved to be therapeutically beneficial, at least not so far.
Pain killers, like Paracetamol, are of little help. Neither is Co-Codamol which also exacerbates normal Parkinson’s constipation.
I spend a good deal of time massaging her toes, feet and calves and this does offer some, but not lasting, relief. However, this is hardly a practical solution.
Does anyone have any suggestions of how to control the cramps and pain?
