Pain in upper thighs

Posted by marie @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.

Dear Trish,
Our thoughts are with you. I’m glad that your husband is in hospice care. I’ve heard many say that hospice allows you space to relinquish some of the caregiving duties so that you can concentrate on love and peace.

Hi @tntredhead I am sorry to hear of your husband’s and daughter’s situations. The portion of your journey you are about to embark upon in hospice will be different, but hopefully offering you many new supports. Our hospice nurse did have a booklet titled ‘Out of Sight’ about what you might expect to be happening in your hospice journey. I found it helpful.

This is undoubtedly a tough, intensely sad, and challenging time. I found nothing truely prepares us for loss, so all I can say is please remember there are some here who are walking that path of loss and grief and we can offer willing ears to listen and broad shoulders to lean upon.

Peace and strength!

I take Peddling for Parkinson three times a week at my fitness center. Very good exercise. I still do BIG exercise s every morning at home. I also have stationary bike at home. Saw neurologist for 3 month checkup last week. Said I still do not need any meds just exercise. So we shall see.

I still have stomach upsets but think due to post nasal drip due to allergies. I take allegra but not very effective. Any suggestions?

Hi @mariemarie I live in Michigan where we all have post nasal drip. I use a prescription nasal spray, however, I think that it is now available without prescription. I prefer the spray to using a pill as it does not affect heart rate, blood pressure, etc. There are a few other allergy meds that are OTC that you could try. Often when one allergy med fails to work effectively you can switch off to another one. Teresa
