You say that our lack of dopamine production interferes with comunication from the brain to the body's muscles. However, happily, I have never read about the largest muscle in the body being impacted by PD: the heart.
Are we more likely than other non-PDers to heart attack or other heart problems related to our PD? And if so, is there anything we can do to minimize that potential impact?
Anyone with any info on this I would appreciate hearing from.
