This is second article in a two-part series discussing nonmotor symptoms in Parkinson disease (PD). Although it is often tremor that first brings PD to someone’s attention, the nonmotor symptoms of PD can cause a significant portion of the discomfort and disability for people with Parkinson’s (PWP). Not everyone will experience all of these symptoms, but it is important for PWP and their loved ones to be aware of these symptoms so that treatments can be considered.
