" I have arm and shoulder pain, but I injured mine at work. The PD may have something to do with it too. I usually get in the hot tub at the end of the day. It really helps. A nice hot bath would probably help, too. The best of luck to you.

" I too had the same problem first with my rt shoulder and now my left and from my research I found that it can take up to 2 yrs for the frozen shoulder to feel better which has been my experience. I found that those with PD are more predisposed to having joint pain and limitations and they most commonly affect the shoulder. Before my dx of PD the problems with my shoulder led me to my doc and he said it was my rotator cup and proceeded to give me cortisone shots which heped very litte of course and it wasnt till later I found that the PD was indirectly involved. That was 3 yrs ago and now my lft shoulder is having the same problems that my rt did and I just do what I can and wait for the yr or 2 to go by knowing it will feel better like my rt arm eventually did. God bless and I hope you feel better. Heat helps and so does some massage and I have heard that acupuncture is helpful with it though I did not try that. "

" My mother's upper arm and shoulder pain in 2006 led her from one physician to another, including neurologists, all of whom put her through various tests and none of whom could determine the cause of her pain. One PD-neurologist even blew it off as "simple degeneration." Finally, however, she had a very in-depth examination and testing at the Mayo Clinic, whereupon she was diagnosed with PD.

And, yes, as my mom would tell you, PD can certainly hurt, especially the spasms. Fortunately, medications help, but they have side effects, as we are finding out more and more...

Best wishes to you. "

" i was diagnosed with PD about 6 mos ago... i had shoulder issues for the last year or so but figured i did something to it at work.. it's not on the same side as my tremors so i never connected the two to the same problem... i find the heating pad helps my shoulder.. wish it would help tremors too i'd invest in two heating pads :) Stay positive!!!!

" Have had PD for 4 years and only recently have I developed upper right arm/shoulder pain. I have yet to see my dr on this but was wondering if it was related to the drugs I am taking. I take sinamet, azilect, and amandatine. "
