SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS

The symptoms of CJD can include:

  • memory loss

  • changes in personality

  • loss of balance and co-ordination

  • slurred speech

  • vision issues, including blindness

  • abnormal movement

  • progressive loss of brain function and mobility

 

The decline in mobility that occurs as a result of CJD also leaves people with the condition much more vulnerable to infection, which is often life-threatening.
