Good Day everyone, I hope you all are doing well!
Pardon my ignorance however I have a question about dystonia, particularly can it come and go? The reason I am asking is that I get this agonizing (to the point its difficult to walk) pain and swelling in my left calf/ankle/foot every month or so and it lasts for about 3-4 days. Other times its in my shoulder, then chest/neck muscles, etc.
Before I was diagnosed with PD I went to a podiatrist and reuhmatologist for this pain and after xrays and MRI's they found nothing and were left scratching their heads. also my other pains were just chalked up to "pulled muscles" and I always thought that odd because although not impossible but how can I pull the same muscles every month (not like im an athlete are anything).
I spoke to by MDS yesterday and she said that it could be from the PD and during my next appointment in a few weeks we will talk about maybe starting some small doses of PD meds.
Have a great day all!!
