Thank you for the question.
Parkinson's disease is a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects your 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 signs and symptoms may include:
- Slowed movement (bradykinesia)
- Rigid muscles
- Impaired posture and balance.
- Loss of automatic movements
See your Doctor if you have any of the symptoms associated with Parkinson's disease. Your Doctor will diagnose Parkinson's disease based on your medical history, a review of your signs and symptoms, and a neurological and physical examination.
I hope this will help you. Take care.
