My husband has parkinson he is in constant pain. He is on a very mild pain pill that is not working. Does parkinson cause pain? If so what should we do so he can get some relief? He is 73. I am his sole caregiver he has to wear depends because he doesn't have much control of bladder or bowel. I have to watch him so as not to fall. Any suggestions?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Yes parkinson is muscle stiffening disease and it affects l postures and body musculature. Treating parkinson adequately is first step, once in control and managed , the pain will subside as well, muscle relaxants, strong pain killers should eb added to the list. Talk to a pain management experts and let them help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
