Neurologist 's  Response

Thank you for posting your query.

It is unlikely that your heart symptoms are related to Parkinsonism.

Also, memory impairment, Bladder and bowel dysfunction, etc are not a prominent feature in early stages of Parkinson's disease (PD). However, these symptoms occur earlier in PD mimics such as multiple system atrophy (MSA).

Please consult a neurologist for correct diagnosis and treatment plans.

Best wishes,
