Did anyone else have head trauma before PD

Did anyone else have head trauma before PD

Has anyone had a head injury or blows to the head in the years prior to pd diagnosis?

About 5 yrs before my symptoms appeared I was attacked by thugs with a baseball bat on parking lot . Had 4 good blows to the head, broken arm etc.

I've often wondered if there is a connection since there is no pd in family...

I was in a serous car accident when in my late 20's hospitalize with a critical concussion for 3 weeks after. I was diagnosed in my mid 60's. Looking back there were many symptoms before diagnosis.

I never fell and I don't know of any one in my family that has or had Parkinson's.

I fell and landed on my back hitting my head very hard on the path about 12 months before being diagnosed. Have often wondered if the two are linked.

Brian was in two fights with head injuries I’ve often wondered if they had anything to do with his PD

I was as a child beaten around the head by my so called father as we're my mum and siblings but am the only one with pd he died at 62 so don't know about my dx but I had genetic testing to see if I inherited this which came back negative.
