3 Diagnosis of Parkinsons Disease

To learn more about the Parkinsons Foundation, visit parkinson.org. To register for the foundations Parkinsons Revolution event, visit PDRevolutionCO.org.

Every nine minutes, someone in the United States is diagnosed with Parkinsons disease.

It is the fastest-growing neurological disease, but there is much less known about it when compared to other diseases, said Lisa Cone, an advocate for the Parkinsons Foundation who also serves as vice chair of the organizations People with Parkinsons Council.

Its such a different disease to live with because it affects everything, Cone said. Every body system is connected to Parkinsons symptoms.

Parkinsons disease is a progressive and degenerative brain disorder that affects a persons muscle movement. While the disease itself is not fatal, its complications can be serious and greatly diminish quality of life. The most obvious motor, or movement, symptoms include tremors, slowing and stiffening movements.

Parkinsons also includes a wide range of non-movement, or non-motor, symptoms that can include fatigue, cognitive changes such as problems with attention, and mood disorders such as depression, anxiety and apathy. According to the Alzheimers Association, an estimated 50% to 80% of those with Parkinsons eventually experience Parkinsons disease dementia as their disease progresses.

Additionally, because there is no standard diagnostic test for Parkinsons, misdiagnosis can happen.

And patients cant work, Cone added.
