A 21-year-old member asked:

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

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in

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.
Dr. Craig Morton
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 18 years experience
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.
