Brief Summary:


Non-Motor Symptoms (NMS) are frequent in patients with Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease (IPD). Clinical expressions, postulated pathophysiological mechanisms and responsiveness to antiparkinson medication represent differences between IPD and secondary Parkinsonism (SP).


To evaluate NMS expressions in IPD, SP and a control group.


Diagnosis of SP was supported by comorbidity, radiological findings, type of onset, onset rate and progression, exposures for neuroleptics, and responsiveness to pharmacological antiparkinson therapy.

The participants were consecutively recruited at two outdoor patient clinics. The Well-Being Map™ for evaluation. These were completed by the participants at one point before visit. The controls consisted of non-Parkinsonian individuals, matched by age and gender.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence of selfreported motor and non-motor symptoms with The Parkinson´s Well-being map [ Time Frame: 12 months ]

    A graded check list presented in The Parkinson´s Well-BeingMap is used in the registration of self reported frequencies and self experienced strength of Motor and Non- Motor Symptoms in two different forms of parkinsonism and in a group of healthy controls.The experienced magnitude of suffering is visualized in a spider diagram reflecting the strength of each item on an ordinal scale from 0 to four.

    Primary outcome measure is to compare reported frequencies between groups.

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Prevalence of combinations of reported motor and non-motor symptoms using [ Time Frame: 12 months ]
    Secondary outcome measures are to study commonly reported combinations of non-motor symptoms within the groups, with respect to gender and duration of disease.
