A.

There are several types of pain associated with PD. Hip or shoulder pain - particularly on the side most affected by PD - may be an early sign of PD. However, other joint pain, is likely from arthritis.

Muscle pain from PD may be divided into a cramping type pain usually from a wearing off from medications, or stiffness from lack of medications. Treatment includes medication adjustment and exercise - particularly light stretching.
