Variable: The symptoms of cjd can be quite varied, making it difficult to diagnose. Symptoms can include impaired coordination, judgment, memory, vision or thinking, or personality changes. There can also be insomnia, depression or unusual sensations. The symptoms would always be progressive if caused by cjd.
