Neck pain: Hi for the past six weeks I... - Parkinson's Movement
I have had a stiff neck for 9 months. It too goes down my arms. I also have sciatica in both legs. The sides switch back and forth sometimes.
The neck is caused by Bradykenisis. Neurotransmitters slow down and smash into upper discs. I go to a spinal pain Doctor (an anesthesiologist) and get a Cervical Epidural Steroid injection. Yes, this is all from PD.
Its amazing how one struggles with pain but learns to live with it. I'm keeping fingers crossed that legal medical Cannabis will ease mine. Don't fancy a spinal injection at all.
How often do you have to have them?
Legal Cannabis is available to me in 2 day's. 11 years with PD. About time I am rewarded.
Weed is the way. New York is just getting organized, so I'm getting by with a little help from my friends. I was just out in LA. excellent quality. Very selective to what it helps. I've got double sciatica and my legs always hurt. Better for that than neck.
The injections work, but you can't have them often.
Keep on Truckin'
So strange. I have started with the neck$shoulder pain that runs down my arm.and elbow.(last few days)I too have noticed headache with dizziness (since yesterday) and was just thinking where has this come from as I cant remember lifting anything heavy.it's so painful and it has actually woken me up.I wonder if it is PD
Yes, the Neck pain is a result of bradykneses. Probably have a curvature of the spine with various discs blown.
Physical therapy is important and THC definitely helps.
How do you sleep? I had 2 nice pillows but I started using a flat firm pillow and it has helped my neck considerably. Sometimes I use an air plain pillow U shaped. That works too.
