Signs of Parkinson"s Disease
Tremors are the most recognizable of the signs of Parkinson’s disease (characterized by a shaking of the limbs and body – about 5 per second). Rigidity, just as it sounds, is a stiffness of the body and muscles. Slowness movement may seem contradictory to the other signs of Parkinson’s disease, but in many cases continued rapid movement eventually causes a decrease in amplitude and the loss of ability to perform that movement at all. Loss of balance is caused by a failure of postural reflexes.
Other motor (movement) signs of Parkinson’s disease include: shuffling, decreased arm swing, “stooped” posture, festination, inability to move the feet, abnormal, and sustained muscle twisting and contraction. Patients also typically suffer speech and swallowing problems like rapid, poorly-intelligible speech, drooling or loss of verbal comprehension.
Some of the non-movement related signs of Parkinson’s disease include: mood disturbances, depression, slowed reaction time, dementia, memory loss, sleep disturbances, fatigue, dizziness and fainting, loss of smell and muscle pain.
Finally, the autonomic (self-managing in the within the body) signs of Parkinson’s disease include: oily skin, urinary incontinence, costipation, altered sexual function, and weight loss.
These typical symptoms and signs of Parkinson’s disease are not fatal, but do cause extreme discomfort in patients
