Concussion and increased incidence of Parkinsons?


#1

Recent research found an increased incidence of Parkinsons, a huge 50% increase, in those who had previously suffered a severe concussion.

Interested to know if this is the case for any forum members? Did you suffer a concussion years before diagnosis?

One parent has Parkinsons, and one adult offspring suffered a severe concussion a while back and was monitored for a year afterwards as they had ongoing symptoms.

Worried about the repercussions of this connection for them in the future.
