Parkinson's: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on October 4, 2016

Below the surface, living with Parkinson's can mean days spent at home, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to Parkinson's than people assume. We know that Parkinson's comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On MyParkinsonsTeam.com, the social network and online support group for people living with Parkinson's, members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms. MyParkinsonsTeam has grown to reach 39,000 members and members have shared over 1 million conversations about life with Parkinson's Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyParkinsonsTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent Parkinson's symptoms because the life-impacting implications of a Parkinson's diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread Parkinson's awareness!



This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
