Is constant yawning a symptom of parkinson's disease?

No: No, though people with Parkinson's often have fatigue/ daytime sleepiness issues and disrupted sleep that might cause yawning. The tendency for many with patkinson's to let their mouth droop open could conceivably be confused with yawning as well.

No: It could be a habit or suggest some other undelying problem.
