Parkinson’s disease is a progressive nervous system disorder that affects movement. Symptoms start gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. Tremors are common, but the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement. In the early stages of Parkinson’s disease, your face may show little or no expression. Your arms may not swing when you walk. Speech may become soft or slurred. Parkinson’s disease symptoms worsen as your condition progresses over time.
As Parkinson’s progresses, one will come to rely on others more and more.
