Urinary Problems in Parkinson's Disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD) has many features that have little or nothing to do with movement. Among these non-motor symptoms are problems with the autonomic nervous system — the part of the nervous system that controls “automatic” bodily functions, such as heart rate, blood pressure, sweating, sexual function and both gastrointestinal and urinary function. These symptoms are often among the most serious and complex issues faced by people with PD.
