Parkinson’s disease (PD) was first described as the “shaking palsy.” But reducing this complex neurological condition to tremors and motor symptoms alone is misleading. In this video, Dr. Stern discusses nonmotor symptoms associated with PD, including urinary problems, constipation, and sleep problems. He also addresses mood and cognitive challenges. In the second half of the video, Dr. Weintraub explains a number of psychiatric issues, including anxiety, depression, and compulsive behaviors.
