The symptoms of Parkinson’s disease can vary from individual to individual. The early symptoms of Parkinson’s include: stooped posture, difficulty in handwriting, gradual loss of smell, constipation, possible changes in the voice. As the disease progresses, more evident symptoms arise: tremor, impaired movement, stiff muscles, balance issues, speech difficulties, a “neutral” face expression and/or decreased frequency of blinking.
Your Online Health Specialist will address a series of targeted questions to you, to assess whether your symptoms could be indicative of Parkinson’s Disease. Then your specialist may recommend a specialized blood or antibodies test, an MRI scan or other molecular-level diagnostic tests to confirm the diagnosis. In most cases a consultation with a Neurologist may be suggested. Your personalized treatment plan will be based upon the diagnostic tests results, the symptoms described and your medical history overall.
