The main symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are shivering, slow movement and stiffness. Symptoms such as odor, constipation, depression, and REM sleep disorder may appear years before diagnosis. Other symptoms may include difficulty swallowing, chewing and talking. You may also experience urinary or skin problems.
Although there is no cure for Parkinson’s disease, early diagnosis can help patients get proper treatment and advice on how to care for and prevent the increase in symptoms. According to Parkinson’s UK, exercising 2.5 hours a week can help slow down the progression of your symptoms.
