Non-motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease can be as disabling as the problems one may experience with their movement. While some non-motor symptoms are commonly related to PD, others do not always have a clear connection. In this collaborative presentation, the ambiguous topics of fatigue, neuropathy, and gastrointestinal issues and how they may relate to medications, Parkinson’s disease, and/or aging will be discussed. Evidenced-based treatments for these non-motor symptoms are addressed as well.
