Is back pain a symptom of PSP? My husband has a severely stiff neck and uses the Neupro patch, which helps for that, but has lately been bothered with back pain. It is not constant, and I thought it was from his stooped posture. He had an episode a couple of weeks ago, and after several days (heating pad and ibuprofen), it subsided. It's back again, and he has had no falls, nothing unusual, just the very stooped posture.
