Rbd & pd

I have a lot of health problems, so it's hard to know what's what.

I have several sleep problems - one of which is RBD - REM Sleep Behavior Disorder. I understand there is is 40% chance of getting PD with it. It is getting worse.

Is there a way to know if you get it early, and is there anything early treatment can do?

I don't have much shakiness - just occasional, but if I concentrate it gets better - so I think it's okay.

I was diagnosed with Organic Brain Syndrome about 10 years ago. My cognitive functions are definitely declining. Don't know if that's related to PD.

I have a few symptoms that give me pause. They think I have Lyme Disease - so maybe it's all related to that.

My hearing is getting worse; I am stumbling a bit on pronouncing things - I have to go a bit slower; my handwriting is a little messier; a few things like that.

Not sure if I should be concerned, or if there is anything to do about it if I am.
