How to manage your Parkinsons symptoms


What do I do if my Parkinson’s symptoms suddenly get worse?

If it is an emergency, or if you are seriously unwell, call 999 immediately for an ambulance.


People with Parkinson’s disease sometimes experience a worsening of their symptoms. It is unusual for a rapid deterioration to be caused by the Parkinson’s disease (PD) alone. Often there are other reasons.


Because of the length of this leaflet, it is available as a digital download only.
