In addition to physical symptoms, Parkinson’s can also cause a range of mental symptoms.
According to the NHS, cognitive and psychiatric symptoms include:
Depression and anxiety
Mild cognitive impairment – slight memory problems and problems with activities that require planning and organisation
Dementia – a group of symptoms, including more severe memory problems, personality changes, seeing things that are not there (visual hallucinations) and believing things that are not true (delusions).
According to Parkinson’s UK, anxiety and depression are two of the most common mental health symptoms that affect people with Parkinson’s.
