Chat with the Parkinson’s Pros – NonMotor Symptoms
Most people don’t automatically recognize that many other medical concerns may actually be a symptom of their Parkinson’s disease. These other changes are known as nonmotor symptoms. Nonmotor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are under diagnosed and represent a major cause of morbidity and disability.
Join us for an educational opportunity with Dr. Trevor Hawkins, University of Colorado Hospital, for a discussion on the nonmotor symptoms which may accompany Parkinson’s disease and how to address these symptoms should they arise.
Nonmotor symptoms include; autonomic dysfunction (orthostatic hypotension, constipation and fecal incontinence, nausea and vomiting, urination symptoms, sweating and heat intolerance, drooling, sexual dysfunction), cognitive and psychiatric symptoms, sleep disorders (sleep apnea, REM sleep disorder, sleep attacks, insomnia, daytime sleepiness and fatigue, RLS and periodic limb movements of sleep), sensory manifestations (smell, taste, cramps, paresthesias and vision) and other symptoms such as weight loss, anorexia and leg edema.
Event is FREE, but Pre-registration is required.
