My sister's son was in a terrible bike wreck earlier this year and he suffered a concussion. In doing some research on concussions, my sister found there could be a link between head injuries and Parkinson's Disease. Did any of you have head injuries as a child and have your doctors mentioned anything about it being linked to your diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease?
