I was diagnosed with PD and Fibromyalgia at the age of 34 (i am 39yrs old now). For the past month I have been in chronic pain... my muscles are sooo tight and constricted in both legs... always cramping or having muscle spasm, burning sensation /tingling. My feet are frozen even with socks on .. I have to stay in a heating blanket or my legs get frozen as well. My back and arms are just really sore and I am very sensitive to the touch... I went to the hospital and when they put the blood pressure strap on my arm I thought I was going to die the pain was too much to bare . I know this is more my Fibromyalgia but wondering if anyone else is having these issue or maybe this is totally something else??? and we Parkies all know if you get sick with something else like a cold your PD goes into high gear.. so yeah been fighting the fibro, pd and now chronic pain.. I am a mess!
I have been having alot of trouble with my neurologist in helping me find out what is causing the problem... all they want to do is give me higher dosage of my current medication (on both cymbalta and lyrica highest dosage) or change the pain pills( on baclofen and percocet), so feed up with how they are treating me my primary is referring me to the University of Denver hospital in April (earliest they could get me in) due to the chronic pain i've had to take a leave of absence from my job for 2 months... I really think this is more then fibromyalgia maybe a muscle disorder ... just want to stop hurting... all suggestion are appreciated!
