Study reveals syndrome combining Parkinson’s and fibromyalgia

An Israeli research study found that some people with Parkinson’s disease, also referred to as PD, also have fibromyalgia, or FM, creating a unique syndrome. Many of these patients are women who also have depression or anxiety. This group tends to use more pain medication and more antidepressants as well as smoke cigarettes at a higher rate than people with PD only.
