NONMOTOR SYMPTOMS OF PARKINSON'S DISEASE

Chat with the Parkinson’s Pros – NonMotor Symptoms

Most people don’t automatically recognize that many other medical concerns may actually be symptoms of their Parkinson’s disease. These other changes are known as nonmotor symptoms. Nonmotor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are underdiagnosed and represent a major cause of morbidity and disability.

Join us for an educational opportunity with Dr. Samantha Holden, 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.
