Parkinson's disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement. It develops gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. But while a tremor may be the most well-known sign of Parkinson's disease, the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement.
Parkinson's disease symptoms and signs may vary from person to person. Early signs may be mild and may go unnoticed. Symptoms often begin on one side of your body and usually remain worse on that side, even after symptoms begin to affect both sides. Parkinson's signs and symptoms may include:
A tremor, or shaking, usually begins in a limb, often hands or fingers. A back-and-forth rubbing of your thumb and forefinger, known as a pill-rolling tremor can occur. One characteristic of Parkinson's disease is a tremor of the hands when they are relaxed.
Over time, Parkinson's disease may reduce ability to move and slow movement, making simple tasks difficult and time-consuming. Steps may become shorter when walking, or difficulty is experienced to get out of a chair. Also, dragging of feet while walking happens, making it difficult to move.
Muscle stiffness may occur in any part of the body. The stiff muscles can limit range of motion and cause pain. Also, posture may become stooped and balance becomes more challenging.
Decreased ability to perform unconscious movements, including blinking, smiling or swinging your arms when walking. Speech problems can also include speaking softly, monotonously, quickly, sluring or hesitation before talking. It is more challenging to write.
