In brief: Subtle

The behavioral, personality, and mood changes are the first warning but are nonspecific.
The tremor and myoclonic jerking will alert a physician to the possibility. The incubation period is many years, and people exposed during the epidemic may still become ill. The disease is not treatable, and there is no benefit to early diagnosis.
