Parkinson’s disease is a progressive disorder of the central nervous system which affects more than 1.5 million people in the United States. Because Parkinson’s disease is a progressive illness, symptoms slowly get worse over time.
Parkinson’s disease can cause several different symptoms. The specific group of symptoms that an individual experiences varies from person to person.
Some of the most common symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are:
- tremor of the hands, arms, legs, jaw and face
- rigidity of stiffness of the limbs and trunk
- slowness of movement
- postural instability or impaired balance and coordination
