Hi Anonymous,

Thanks for writing! I'm sorry to hear about your husband. With Parkinson's disease, symptoms begin mildly but progressively worsen over time. Difficulty speaking is one of the many symptoms of Parkinson's so, if your husband has stopped speaking altogether, it could be a sign that the disease is worsening. Please speak with his doctor to see what s/he thinks.


Best Wishes to both of you,
