Parkinson’s disease has some hidden symptoms
As per experts working in the field of Parkinson’s disease, there are some hidden symptoms that indicate the onset of the condition.
The researchers claim that the existence of Parkinson’s disease can be diagnosed if a person experiences hallucinations or delusions for at least 30 days.
The most commonly known symptoms of the disease are rigidity, tremors, and impaired walk. It is unusual for the hallucinations or delusions to be considered as one of the symptoms by family or friends.
Hallucinations or delusions are imaginary thoughts that may seem real to a person although they are not. They are associated with mental disorders.
There is not enough known about these hidden symptoms and thus they are not considered to be linked to Parkinson’s.
As per experts, half of people with Parkinson’s disease will develop these types of symptoms over the course of the disease.
It is therefore vital to report the occurrence of hallucinations or delusions to a physician so that timely diagnoses can be made.
