Changes in speech, swallowing, and eating that may indicate Parkinson’s :
Most of the time, the symptoms of the disease are ignored, but if you are a little careful, you can recognize some of them.
Experts believe that Parkinson’s disease has early symptoms that can be used to better control and manage the disease.
one of the symptoms that we have discussed in the section on Updatebody is the problem of swallowing.
Studies show that people with Parkinson’s have difficulty swallowing.
In fact, there is a type of movement disorder among these people that also affects their swallowing and causes complex movements in the swallowing area, which is unusual.
Slowing of body movements in this disease also causes problems in eating food and fluids.
The symptoms of dysphagia are not always obvious, but many people may get the disease without knowing it.
It is important to know that dysphagia does not occur similar to coughing and suffocation and is sometimes completely hidden.
For example, weight loss without effort, feeling of food stuck in the throat, accumulation of food on the gum line, heart palpitations, heartburn, sore throat and difficulty keeping food in the mouth are some of the symptoms.
If you have these symptoms, be sure to talk to your doctor because it is usually seen in people with Parkinson’s.
Difficulty speaking and chewing
Parkinson’s affects body movement.
Swallowing is not the only function that is affected by this disease.
Parkinson’s disease can also affect the muscles of the face, mouth and throat and make it difficult to speak and chew.
Early symptoms include difficulty writing, difficulty sleeping, difficulty walking, decreased sense of smell, constipation, thinning voice, and dizziness.
Early diagnosis of dysphagia
Dysphagia may also cause other problems, the rapid diagnosis of which is one of the key solutions.
Swallowing problems can cause malnutrition, dehydration and respiratory problems, or even pneumonia, but early detection can improve the quality of life of people with Parkinson’s and increase their risk of death.
