Parkinson’s is the fastest growing neurological condition in the world, and there is no cure for it yet.

The symptoms of Parkinson’s disease can be different for different people, so just because you’ve had only a few symptoms you should still see your GP.

Parkinson’s disease affects the brain and is a neurodegenerative disease. This means that over time, the parts of the brain affected by Parkinson’s disease gradually become worse.

Symptoms begin when the brain cannot produce enough dopamine to properly control movement.

Some of the more well-known symptoms of Parkinson’s disease affect movement, such as tremors, and are easy to spot. But the most unusual symptoms can go unnoticed.

These symptoms are known as invisible symptoms, and you should not ignore them if you develop any.

The “smelly” signs that you should not ignore – sweating:

Parkinson’s disease can affect the autonomic nervous system, including the part that regulates how much you sweat.

This leads to sweating a lot, known as hyperhidrosis, or too little sweating, which is a lack of sweating, which can leave your skin very dry.

For some people, this can occur in the form of night sweats, but for others, it can be during the day as well.

And if you sweat excessively, be sure to drink plenty of water to replace lost fluids.

In addition, Parkinson’s disease can impair your ability to smell. So, if you sweat excessively, you may not be aware of your body odor.

You should see a doctor who will be able to check what makes you sweat, and whether Parkinson’s disease is a possible cause.

What are other invisible symptoms of Parkinson’s disease?

The so-called symptoms of Parkinson’s disease often go unnoticed, but if you notice any of these symptoms, be sure to make an appointment with your doctor to have them checked:

– constipation

Low blood pressure

Sexual problems (erectile dysfunction in men, decreased sexual desire in women)

Urination problems (either more frequent or difficult urination)

Parkinson’s disease can also affect mood and way of thinking. Psychological symptoms of Parkinson’s disease include:

Lack of motivation to do anything

Cognitive problems: Parkinson’s disease can affect your thinking in many different ways, and some people notice problems with their memory while others struggle with concentration.

Low mood: Depression and anxiety can occur as symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.

Psychosis: Hallucinations and disengagement from reality can be symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Psychosis is a medical emergency, so seek help if someone you know has psychosis.
