Why "Shaking Palsy" Is Still a Mystery

Parkinson's disease symptoms

The symptoms of Parkinson’s disease can vary across the board, yet are known to include a series of specific traits in the patient. The potential symptoms include a noticeable decrease in the speed of one’s movement, tremors, stiff muscles, altered posture, poor balance, alterations in how the patient speaks, as well as how they write. The symptoms mentioned will often worsen over time, resulting in the patient’s need for more careful care. More severe cases can even result in the need for the patient to be placed in a nursing home, since more simpler tasks would be difficult to perform as the disease progresses.
