Parkinson’s and You
Being diagnosed with Parkinson’s can lead to feelings of confusion and fear about the nature of what you now face. The key to dealing with these emotions and your diagnosis is knowledge and understanding.
The disease is life-affecting but not life-threatening.
There are many ways to treat and cope with the condition effectively. The Beats Medical app is one of these ways.
The first thing to know is that you are not alone in this diagnosis. There are an estimated 10 million people with Parkinson’s worldwide; additionally, many cases go undiagnosed, misdiagnosed or are completely unreported. We want to make sure that you know you are never alone in facing this condition. Parkinson’s is a progressive, neurological condition. It is predominantly characterised by problems with body movements, known as ‘motor symptoms’.
It is also important to understand that Parkinson’s is a very individualistic disease. Symptoms vary greatly from person to person and usually begin slowly, develop gradually and manifest in no particular order. Everyone with Parkinson’s will have a different set of symptoms, and be on a different drug regime, so try not to compare your condition to that of others. Some of the more common symptoms associated with the condition are:
