My mother has Parkinson's disease and she is 82 years old. She has had the dbs surgery and it has helped. Now she is complaining of pain in her neck?

In brief: Talk to MD

The dbs procedure is unlikely to have cause a problem with the neck.
There may be an underlying problem with the neck which can be treated. Your neurosurgeon can help you with this.

In brief: Likely unrelated

Unless dbs is causing dystonia (abnormal forceful muscle contractions) neck pain is unrelated.
At 82 years of age, there is plenty of time to develop degenerative arthritis. Get mom an exam by her neurologist followed by neck imaging (x-ray and/or mri).
