I was diagnosed with Parkinson two years ago. My problem is I still work but for the last 6 months I have had severe back and right hip pain.My neurologist said that's for the orthopedic department. The orthopedic doctors wont inject my hip as he has done in the past because I have Parkinson. I go to physical therapy two times a week. I have taken Etodolac and methocarbonol for months but they don't help.The orthopedic doctor said this is just part of having Parkinson deal with it.. I think patient with any chronic illness should have the right to the same kind of pain relief as any other patient.
