Parkinson’s is a disease that causes certain nerve cells in the brain to gradually break down and eventually die. The brain then begins to function abnormally causing the many symptoms of Parkinson’s. Your genes ultimately play a major role in this disease, but there is actually no proven cause of Parkinson’s. Diagnosis usually comes around the age of 62.
Symptoms of Parkinson’s
Coping with Parkinson’s disease can be a very difficult thing to do. Several symptoms come with this particular disease, many of which may make you uncomfortable in public and uncomfortable in your own skin. The most common symptoms include:
- A tremor, or shaking. It will usually start in just one limb. Especially when your hands are at rest, Parkinson’s will make your hands and fingers shake.
- Slow movement. It may be difficult to lift off the couch or to walk without dragging your feet. This disease will also decrease your overall balance.
- Stiff muscles. This may cause pain throughout your body.
- Speech and writing impairments. Speech may become more monotoned or slurred, while writing may become difficult.
A Progressive Disorder
The symptoms above will only worsen as your condition progresses over time. Parkinson’s disease is labeled as a chronic degenerative progressive disease. This means it will develop gradually, and unfortunately, medicine isn’t able to cure it. The only solution for any improvements would be a lifestyle change.
Many people with Parkinson’s will take medications in the attempt to eliminate the shakes all together, but the only real way to compensate and cope with the disease is to take control.
