Experts discover 40 different signs for Parkinson’s disease

The most well known symptom of Parkinson’s disease is tremors, but there are surprising early signs you might fail to recognise.

Lesser known changes – such as your handwriting getting smaller – may develop in the disease’s early stages.

Other unfamiliar symptoms include losing your sense of smell and sleep problems, including experiencing vivid dreams.

April is awareness month for the long-term degenerative disorder.

Tanith Muller, Parliamentary and Campaigns Manager at Parkinson’s UK Scotland, says most people know very little about the disease.

“Parkinson’s has over 40 recognised symptoms and everyone is different,” she told the Daily Record.

There currently isn’t a cure for Parkinson’s, but treatment can help manage some parts of the condition.

“Feeling anxious or depressed and struggling to think or remember. Your body not feeling like your own. This is what Parkinson’s can feel like.”

The charity says there are 12,000 people with the disease in Scotland and 30 people are expected to be diagnosed every week.

She added: “If you’re worried that you or someone you know might have Parkinson’s, the most important thing is to speak to your doctor about it.

“And there are lots of things that you can do to make life better. It’s never too late, but often the sooner you start, the more of a difference you can make.”
