What is Parkinson’s disease?

Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological condition which affects movement. A reduction in the number and functioning of brain nerve cells causes a deficiency in specific chemicals and this affects the brain’s ability to transmit information.

Symptoms of Parkinson’s disease

The most common symptoms of Parkinson’s are:

  • Tremor (shaking)
  • Slowness of movement
  • Rigidity (stiffness)
  • Bladder and bowel problems
  • Eye problems
  • Falls and dizziness
  • Freezing
  • Pain
  • Restless legs syndrome
  • Skin, scalp and sweating problems
  • Problems with sleep
  • Speech and communication problems
  • Problems with swallowing

The symptoms of Parkinson’s can be treated with medication, however, there is no cure.
