A complete list of symptoms?

Hey, I just flew into Boston and boy are my arms tired.

Can this be a result of Parkinson’s?

I never had this problem before.
Like so many other issues I never had before, how do I know it’s Parkinson’s related or is it just the aging process? I’m 68 and I think I’m in pretty good shape.
Problems thus far are, tremors, swallowing, no taste or smell, left side only slightly weaker. Otherwise, I box at the gym, run 2 miles every other day, do core exercises, and Play guitar

I’ve read many comments here and on other sites. I know some issues are Parkinson’s related, some are not.
My concern is , as a result of reading so much, what about the next symptom or the one after that.?
I like to say that whatever new symptom pops up, I can relate it to Parkinson’s. But that may not be fair.
I need to start speaking truth to Parkinson’s.

Is there a comprehensive list of related symptoms both direct and indirect(?) to reference?

Stay safe everyone!

  1. Hi Jeff t, I hope you had a good trip to Boston! When I read the first sentence of your post, it sounded like your arms were tired from flying. Almost a joke but not when you are seriously talking about a new discomfort with PD. Sorry!
    Here are some article that I thought you might search on your inquiry about symptoms both direct and indirect of PD:

    Please let us know if these are helpful.

    1. Hi Suzanne: funny, I’ve been on this site for awhile and probably saw the symptoms heading in the list but probably had time restrictions and didn’t go in.


      This is great. I will check the other sites as well.


      Thanks so much.

      1. Hi Jeff t, hopefully I did not offend you. A comedy of errors eh? Or something like that. On that note, I have to say that even though my own father at age 86 PWP and dementia is having more bad days now, he has not lost his sense of humor! This brings a breath of fresh air to those with PD and us care partners. I hope this is true for you also!
        I pray that you find some answers to your current questions and symptoms. Please keep in touch on how you are doing.
        Best regards, Suzanne

    2. Hi Suzanne: it’s all good you pointed me in the right direction. Very helpful. Thanks so much.

      1. You’re welcome. Have a great day Jeff.
        Blessings to you. Suzanne T.
