Six Extra Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease

In an earlier write-up I spoke of six symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease that I encountered as I was becoming diagnosed with this illness. I will now go over extra subtle symptoms.


As Parkinsons progresses your movements are in slow motion, and can slow you down additionally by 50% within the middle of some thing you’re performing. For instance you’re walking you all of sudden slow down and its tough to maintain a steady pace.


Once more as the illness progresses you’ve a tendency to appear to be sleeping, but your head is nodded and you are able to still hear what’s going on. Your attention isn’t almost as great. I’ve been asked numerous times are you sleeping and I truly surprise individuals by telling them what they had been talking about or I will answer a question that they’ve asked.

ARMS Don’t SWING Whenever you WALK

I did not know this until my physician told me they had been not moving. Even when I’m conscious of this reality I can manually swing them but they soon quit unless I consider them all of the time. Its like an involuntary action.


I fell a couple of times and when the physician told me that this was 1 of the issues with this illness I began to be extremely careful and I stopped falling.


I discovered that within the last couple of years that my leg muscles and my fingers had been beginning to cramp up. I discovered that if I’m holding some thing in my fingers for a lengthy time that my index finger and thumb will cramp.


When I wake up within the morning my body will suddenly go extremely rigid and all my muscles will stretched. This may just suddenly happen and last about 10 seconds.

These are much more subtle symptoms that I’ve experienced. I will elaborate further on all these symptoms in future articles. I should point out here that these are my symptoms and that everyone doesn’t have the exact same ones however it is fairly general. For exmple I don’t shake which will be the symptom that many people asociate with Parkinson’s Disease.
