In this latest Episode of Reflections on Parkinson’s Disease, Prof’s Bloem and Poewe discuss what is meant by ‘on/off’ fluctuations and what it entails.
They evaluate the ‘good on and the bad on’ and consider that when a patient is turned ‘on’, medication can sometimes overshoot its target, which means patients develop involuntary movements which are called Dyskinesia’s.
The Prof’s then explore the different types of Dyskenisia’s, what problems can arise for patients who are suffering them and also how it can affect their loved ones in everyday life.
