  • bullet Bradykinesia (slowness of movement)
  • bullet Rigidity (stiffness, or resistance of the limb to passive movement when the limb is relaxed)
  • bullet Postural instability (poor balance).

Symptoms of Parkinson's disease vary from patient to patient. The symptoms may appear slowly and in no particular order. Early symptoms may be subtle and may progress over many years before reaching a point where they interfere with normal daily activities. These often include the following:

  • lowered voice volume (dysarthria)
  • small, cramped, spidery handwriting
  • losing track of a word or thought
  • irritability or sadness for no apparent reason
  • lack of expression in the face
  • lack of animation
  • remaining in a certain position for long period of time
  • unable to normally move arm or leg

Secondary symptoms of Parkinson's:

  • depression
  • senility
  • difficulty with speaking
  • emotional changes (fearful and insecure)
  • memory loss and slow thinking
  • difficulty in swallowing and chewing
  • urinary problems or constipation
