About Parkinson disease:
Parkinson disease is a chronic brain disorder. It mainly affects the way the brain co-ordinates the movements of the muscles in various parts of the body. Parkinson disease is not usually inherited, and it can affect anyone. However, inherited (genetic) factors may be important in the small number of people who develop Parkinson before the age of 50.
3 common symptoms:
The brain cells and nerves affected in Parkinson disease normally help to produce smooth, co-ordinated movements of muscles. Therefore, three common Parkinson disease symptoms that gradually develop are:
- Slowness of movement (bradykinesia). The diagnosis of Parkinson disease may not become apparent unless other symptoms occur.
- Stiffness of muscles (rigidity) and muscles may feel more tense. Also, your arms do not tend to swing as much when you walk.
- Shaking (tremor) is common but does not always occur. It typically affects the fingers, thumbs, hands and arms but can affect other parts of the body.
The symptoms tend slowly to become worse. However, the speed in which symptoms become worse varies from person to person and it can take several years until it affects the daily life.
Although there is currently no cure for Parkinson disease, a range of drugs, treatments and therapies are available to manage the symptoms.
Ask your health care provider if you have any questions about Parkinson disease available treatments.
