Parkinson’s disease: knowing the signs
Several questionnaires and research tools have been developed to help professionals determine whether a person has Parkinson’s disease. Sometimes these sorts of questions will be asked:
- Has your handwriting become smaller?
- Do you have trouble getting out of a chair?
- Do people say they cannot hear you because your voice is softer?
- Do you ever seem to be stuck to the floor?
- Do people notice that you are not showing facial expressions?
- Do your hands or legs shake?
- Do you have difficulty dressing?
- Do you shuffle your feet when you walk?
- Do you take tiny steps when you walk?
- Is your balance poor?
- Has anyone ever asked you if you have Parkinson’s disease?
- Have you ever taken L-dopa, Levodopa, or Sinemet?
