THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING
A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP
February 16, 2017 4:00-5:30 PM
Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension, nOH
Join us to hear Sarah Jones, MPA MS, Executive Director, Parkinson & Movement Disorder Alliance discuss hypotension in PD and answer questions you might have.
Do you think you know much about nOH? You may not know how it relates to your Parkinson’s and mistreatment or lack of treatment can be dangerous. Common in mid- and late-stage PD, low blood pressure (orthostatic hypotension or OH) can cause loss of balance, fainting or falling. It can cause headaches and difficulty thinking-or no symptoms at all! Both PD and the medications used to treat it can cause this condition. It’s important that we understand what it is and how to keep it from negatively affecting our quality of life.
