      For the past week, I have been having bad low back pain.  Its bad when I get out of bed in the morning, especially when I sit down and get up again after breakfast. As the day goes on, the pain diminishes. I don’t know if this is arthritis due to aging or PD related.  I just spent a small fortune on a new mattress 6 months ago, so I doubt it is related to my mattress.

      Anyone else suffering from back pain since their PD diagnosis?

      Yes, I too experience the same thing. When I woke I actually felt as if I am very tired, also my back muscles are got strained. But thanks to Nest Bedding Mattress, duet to their soft and cozy mattress I finally got rid of my back pain.

      If I really am diligent about stretching ( laying on floor, knees to chest) and doing yoga child’s pose as soon as i get up, it helps..  It is so difficult to tell if something is caused by PD or other factor.  I start blaming PD for everything LOL.

      Facing this same issue and really this very heartbreak situation. Dor recommends me to change the mattress and I really get much relief from back pain after changing my mattress.

      I have back stiffness when I’ve slept 5-6 hours solid, which doesn’t happen often, but it goes away as the day wears on. It may be too because I had two herniated disks removed 40 years ago. As you say, yoga helps. But I have no way of knowing how I’d be if I didn’t have PD or do yoga.

      Funny thing about PD, we dont know if our issues are caused by PD and we dont know what works and what doesnt work to alleviate symptoms. Hence, my hesitation to stop doing something that might  possibly help.

      Just joined and diagnosed only in the past month. I’d been having tremors for about six months but then started having back pain that would move from one location to another and was sometimes severe and sometimes not present at all. I saw an acupuncturist, a rolfer, and then an osteopath looking for a treatment that would address this back pain. My osteopath sent me to my PCP since she was suspicious about the tremor and my PCP sent me to a neurologist. Neurologist (and all the info I’ve found in my research) suggests that pain in the neck/shoulders or in the lower back isn’t uncommon in PD, I haven’t found any reference to pain that has no specific locus and moves around the way mione does.

      So – has anyone else had back pain that isn’t in a specific area but moves from place to place?

        andrew, thanks for sharing.  my pain does not move around, although sometimes i have back pain and sometimes i dont. as it is with pd, there are so many unanswered questions.

      Consider talking to your doctor about a series of steroids treatment.  This can give amazing relief and will let you know if it is unrelated to PD.

        it is good to keep your doctor in the loop.  PT may also be a viable option

      I have the same problem, lower back pain and my right shoulder when first waking thought it was age or work related before diagnosis.

        One of the things (and there are many) about pd that frustrates me is the fact some of my symptoms could be from aging and not pd.  I blame everything on pd now 😉
