From Low Blood Pressure to Bladder Problems: A Look at Lesser-Known Parkinson’s Symptoms (Webinar)
Wednesday, 6th July 2022
Parkinson’s disease (PD) can affect the autonomic nervous system, which controls the automatic and involuntary functions our bodies perform, like heartbeat and digestion. Many people with Parkinson’s experience autonomic symptoms that may be difficult to talk about, including bladder problems, low blood pressure, constipation and sweating. For some, these symptoms can happen years before a diagnosis. In this audio from The Michael J. Fox Foundation Third Thursdays Webinar, expert panellists discuss these troublesome symptoms and ways to treat them.
In this podcast, moderator Jimmy Choi, Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) Patient Council member, leads a discussion with expert panellists:
- K Ray Chaudhuri, MD, DSc, FRCP, FEAN, professor of movement disorders and neurology, King’s College Hospital
- Anna Hohler, MD, FAAN, movement disorder specialist and chair of neurology, St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center
- Bret Parker, MJFF Patient Council Co-chair, executive director of the New York City Bar Association
