My wife was diagnosed with PD back in February  and takes Sinemet 25-100, 4-5 times daily. I am her caregiver. Her entire body has been racked with Fibromyalgia pain for the last 10 to 15 years. I had to be very careful to not ever apply any pressure [squeeze] an arm or leg or she would wince or cry out in pain. We've be focused only on her PD symptoms since February, but suddenly noticed yesterday that her Fibromyalgia has quietly and completely disappeared.
Could PD and Fibromyalgia be closely related? Could the Sinemet be responsible for the Fibromyalgia pain going away? Or could it be a sign that people with Fibromyalgia are at high risk for developing PD later in life?
Bless you all,
