wbab,Welcome to Healing Well.I understand what when you ask if the pain is pd or back pain.I have degenerative disc disease in my lower spine and the pain is definitely noticeable .many with Pd have a stoopng posture which my neuro and spine specialist seem to think aggravates the situation.In my case I think the pain is a combo of poor posture (tks to PD),and collapsing spinal discs.
AS for sinemet comtan together,if you haven't already done so,ask your neuro about
stalevo.Thsi puts comtan and sinemet together in 1 pill.I take stalevo 25/100 3x.This seems to work for me.I tell the neuro what works for me not the other way around.He doesn't have Pd ,and I have experimented muchly to find a a combo ,and timing that works for me.With as low a daily dose of sinemet that I can function with.Wish you the best,and stay in touch.Ed
