Welcome to our survey entitled "Non-Motor Symptoms in Parkinson's Disease."
 
We would like ALL individuals with PD to participate.
 
Although the last several surveys conducted by The Parkinson Alliance emphasized a specific symptom related to PD, we wanted to dedicate a survey to a broad range of “non-motor symptoms.” Non-motor symptoms of PD may include: sleep disturbance, fatigue, cognitive difficulties (or thinking difficulties), depression, anxiety, hallucinations, sensory changes (i.e., changes in taste and smell; pain), low blood pressure resulting in dizziness and fainting spells, bowel and bladder difficulties, changes in vision, and swallowing difficulties, among others. 

In the past couple of decades there is a growing recognition that non-motor symptoms are experienced early in the disease course and are highly prevalent as PD progresses. A single symptom, like pain, depression or even constipation, can overshadow all other symptoms. Non-motor symptoms have been recently identified as one of the most important factors in determining the quality of life of PD patients.
 
Below, you will see many non-motor symptoms/problems that are common in PD.
 
The information you provide will benefit individuals with PD and care partners as well as treatment providers so that they can better help you. We encourage your participation, but want to emphasize that your participation is completely voluntary and that all information that you provide will be kept strictly confidential.
 
The data collection for this report will conclude on December 1, 2018.
