was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and parkinson's disease after 4 years of the fibro diagnosis. suffering from extreme tremors and pain on the right side of the body. Has difficulty walking and at times blurred vision, has anxiety and depression. Neurologist stated that the cause of severe shoulder pain is froozen shoulder, did not improve after 6 months of gabapentine. Rheumatologist diagnosed it as tendonitis, was given cortisone shots, no improvement, 3 years of excruciating pain and no improvement, movement disorder specialist stated that the pain is not cause by parkinson's was advised to check with family physician, who have referred me to several specialist without success . Pain is unbearable.
While many people with MS do not experience pain, the majority (circa 80%) suffer from pain at some point during the course of the disease. I had severe pain prior to treatment. Also, people with MS do experience "intention" tremors, or tremors that occur when reaching for something. People with Parkenson's Disease also have tremors, but they're "resting" tremors, which means they occur when the hands or effected body part is resting. I had intention tremors before treatment.
People with MS do have lesions, or damaged areas in the white matter of the brain that show up in an MRI. Some have only a few lesions while others have innumerable lesions such as myself.
The best thing to do is find a neurologist and have things checked out. He or she will most likely order a brain MRI.
