  • What is Dyskinesia?

    Posted by Administrator on February 6, 2023 at 10:25 pm

    Dyskinesias are involuntary, erratic, writhing movements of the face, arms, legs, or trunk. They are often fluid and dance-like, but they may also cause rapid jerking or slow and extended muscle spasms. They are not a symptom of Parkinson’s disease (PD) itself. Rather, they are a complication of some Parkinson’s medications.

    1. Is dyskinesia one of your symptoms?
    2. Can you recognize dyskinesia?
    3. Can you differentiate dyskinesia from an OFF episode?
