Pain in upper thighs

Posted by @mariemarie, Mar 8, 2017

I was diagnosed one month ago. Mayo in Florida said i had mild Parkinson Syndrome. Said must exercise 2 1/2 hours a week. No meds now. Does anyone experience pain in upper thighs? I’m in the BIG program for Parkinson. It’s an hour of stretching. Program developed just for Parkinson folks. Maybe the pain is from this program. I have no other pain. It’s four days/week for four weeks.

I was diagnosed 5 months ago. Did BIG with no pain in my thigh but did hurt my hip. It healed but I had to avoid some exercises for a while. Talk to your physio – you could be doing something wrong.

Thanks, pj. Pain has gone away. Go figure. My primary said to take tylenol arthritis if it returns.

Welcome to the group @pjsammy.   I have been the caregiver for my husband for a long time and, due to illness of my own, he is now in an assisted living facility.  Whether or not it is for long term, I don’t know.  I want to bring him home but my doctor and my daughter keeps saying no.  I do spend about 4 hours every day with him and when he’s feeling good, will have the staff help him in the car and we go for a ride.  He has very little speaking capabilities and that frustrates him immensely.  This is a tough road you are on but you will get lots of support from this group.  If I can do anything to make things easier for you, please let me know.  TrishThe Redhead

I was diagnosed with shingles this week. I got the shot 3 years ago. Does PARKINSON cause shingles?

@mariemarie You know, I’ve never heard of any connection between Parkinson’s and shingles. How are you feeling? Are you being treated for the pain? I’ve heard that it is a very painful disorder. I hope you get feeling better soon! Teresa

Nice to hear from you @tntredhead! I have been wondering how you and your husband have been doing. I’m glad to hear that your husband is getting the care he needs and that you are able to take care of yourself as well. How nice that you can get your husband out for rides. That has to be good for him. Keep in touch. Teresa

No pain. Little discomfort. Because i got shot three yrs ago, it’s not as severe per doctor. On med for 7 days.

@mariemarie I’m pleased to hear that the shingles are drying up and that you are getting ready to continue the BIG program as well as the Peddling program. I do have digestive tract problems, but it’s from three surgeries for carcinoid cancer. Not related to the PD. However, many digestive problems can be related to PD. Here is some info from the National Parkinson’s Foundation website that lists the “non-motor” symptoms of PD. I think you will find it interesting, http://www.parkinson.org/Understanding-Parkinsons/Non-Motor-Symptoms. Teresa

Please say prayers for my family as my husband of 44 years is under hospice care and fading fast. Our only child had a stroke in her eye last week and can’t fly so she and her family are driving to New Mexico from Maryland. I am so worried about them and wonder how I can go on without the love of my life by my side Trish
