Its not clear since when you have developed the stiffness of the muscles and whether it responds to syndopa. Many young PD patients might have such sensitivity to medications. It needs to be seen whether the symptoms are related to the medication Vs. Disease course. Various therapeutic options vs surgical options could be suggested based upon this.
