My wife is 81 years of age and has Parkinsons since 2006. She has had the severe pain in her legs daily 24/7 and it seems to get worse as time goes on. We have tried just about every medication to no avail. the only relief she gets is from the Sinemet 25/100 for about two hours then the pain returns and this continues throughout the day and night.Is there anyone that knows of a medication that can control this pain. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.View Thread
My wife has Parkinsons since 2006, is 81 yearsof age and has severe pain in the legs for over a year and a half, and her Doctor tried everything that is available, inclduing the time and dosages of the Sinemet. No pain medication has helped. The only relief she gets is a short period of time from the Sinemet.She gets the pain all day and night with a few hours of relief in between after she gets more Sinemet. I am her husband who cares for her 24/7View Thread
