All About Parkinson’s Disease:
KNOWING THE SIGNS
Several questionnaires and research tools have been developed to help professionals determine whether a person has Parkinson’s disease.
Sometimes these sorts of questions will be asked:
1. Has your handwriting become smaller?
2. Do you have trouble getting out of a chair?
3. Do people say they cannot hear you because your voice is softer?
4. Do you ever seem to be stuck to the floor?
5. Do people notice that you are not showing facial expressions?
6. Do your hands or legs shake?
7. Do you have difficulty dressing?
8. Do you shuffle your feet when you walk?
9. Do you take tiny steps when you walk?
10. Is your balance poor?
11. Has anyone ever asked you if you have Parkinson’s disease?
12. Have you ever taken L-dopa, Levodopa, or Sinemet?
