Brief Answer: No, parkinson's doesnt't cause joint pain Detailed Answer: Dear Friend. Hi , I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern. I am glad to see that you are so active even after suffering from Parkinson's disease that you are asking your query yourself. I appreciate. See , joint pains are not at all characteristic of Parkinson's disease. And i suppose , you must have developed joint pains when you have got Lyme's disease. Lyme's disease can cause troublesome muscular pain and joint pains as well. So , i can tell you one thing that parkinson's doesn't causes joint pains as such. This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any query you may please ask me. Stay Healthy. Dr Anshul Varshney , MD
