Aging or Parkinson’s? Here are 13 Ways You Can Tell
Aside from affecting nerve cells and neurotransmitters inside the body, Parkinson’s disease can also change the normal production of hormones such as dopamine.
Dopamine is an essential hormone for controlling your mood and behavior daily. When it becomes affected, you may start experiencing:
- Unexplained anxiety
- Inability to solve simple problems
As the disease progresses and hormonal production becomes more and more affected, you may also experience psychosis.
Note that all of the symptoms listed above can signal other types of dementia as well, including Alzheimer’s disease. Discussing every change with your doctor is key to detecting any potential illness on time.
