Fatigue and Apathy in Individuals with Parkinson's Disease with and without Deep Brain Stimulation.

In recent years, non-motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD) have received more attention, as these greatly affect quality of life for persons with Parkinson’s disease (PWP), as well as their family and friends. Two poorly understood but common non-motor symptoms in PWP include fatigue and apathy. Each has separate effects on daily life.   Since fatigue and apathy are common in PD, it is important to take a close look at these symptoms, how they may relate to each other, and how they are impacting individuals with PD.

My goal when starting, which grew into,
is to continually serve the Parkinson’s community. 

Our surveys have always been and will always remain free. 

We will never charge anyone to participate in our surveys, and
we will never charge anyone a fee to download the results of our survey.

Because we are also committed to helping to fund the most
promising research to help find the cure to Parkinson’s,
we appreciate any donation to The Parkinson Alliance
