Results, published in the Journal of Parkinson's Disease, showed that people with Parkinson’s who did and did not have COVID-19 were impacted by the pandemic in numerous ways. Both groups experienced new or worsening motor and non-motor symptoms, with significant changes related to tremor, sleep and anxiety. And 62 percent of respondents with Parkinson’s reported an issue accessing health care.
These findings will help us advocate for improved access to care on behalf of the Parkinson’s community. And they could help clinicians understand more about patient needs during the pandemic and provide better care.
