It had been 11 years since 70-year-old James Moore, M.D., was first diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD). He was in the advanced stages and experiencing extreme, unpredictable swings in mobility; one moment he could barely move, and the next moment, he was wracked by dyskinesia, rapid and excessive involuntary movement.
Neurologist, Mindy Bixby, DO, discusses the early signs and symptoms of Parkinson's Disease, commonly referred to as non-motor symptoms.
Dr. Bixby explains how to identify and differentiate these symptoms from other disorders and when it's time to visit your doctor for an accurate diagnosis.
