Abstract

Objective: The fact that non-motor symptoms such as pain in Parkinson's disease (PD) are more associated with musculoskeletal diseases (MSD) suggests that there may be delays in diagnosis. The aim of this study was to review the first symptoms of PD, especially pain, while at the same time reviewing the medical specialists to whom patients first went and examining the effects of these parameters on time to diagnosis and treatment.
