Hello and good afternoon.
Thank you for your question.

Based on your question, I understand that you are worried about your problem. I will try to help you.

For your information, Individuals experience Parkinson’s Disease symptoms differently, although some can be an early marker of the disease.

These include the following:

  • Sleep disorders such as REM sleep apnea and other sleep disorders
  • loss of scent
  • tremors, particularly in one hand
  • difficulties moving or walking or a stooped stride
  • constipation
  • lack of facial expression, which may make the person appear emotionless a low or soft voice

Along with the primary motor symptoms, a person may experience the following:

  • stoop or lean forward as though walking swiftly
  • walk with their arms stiffly by their sides
  • suffer from muscle spasms
  • Drool occurs, you feel fatigued, and you have difficulties writing with a small, cramped hand.
  • have trouble coordinating their motions
  • make involuntary movements and contract muscles for an extended period of time
  • lose facial expression, which can make the speaker appear indifferent or cause them to stare fixedly with unblinking eyes experience sexual dysfunction
  • speak more softly, slur or repeat phrases, adopt a monotonous tone of voice, or speak at different rates, either quicker or slower
  • have difficulties swallowing

However, since you have consulted with a neurologist before, I suggest you do a follow-up with the neurologist as they have a better understanding on the condition of your mother. You can also contact our doctor online for further information and treatment.

I hope this answer helps you. Thank you.
