SYMPTOM MAP

Parkinson’s manifests in an infinite combination of symptoms. Think of PD symptoms as a salad bar. One person has spinach, onions, feta cheese, nuts and Greek dressing on their plate. Another has lettuce, peppers, radishes, cheddar cheese, ham, croutons, and Italian dressing on theirs. While incredibly different, both plates contain the same thing: a salad.
