A 21-year-old member asked:

Should women with persistent neck pain worry about parkinson's?

No: Neck pain is not a symptom of Parkinson's disease. Neck pain with weakness, numbness, coordination problems, or gait difficulty should be evaluated for possible spinal stenosis.

No: Persistent neck pain is likely related to degenerative changes in the neck joints or discs and not parkinson's. See your md if your neck pain persists greater than 2 weeks.
