Please note the types of symptoms and the strength of them does depend on the actual stage of this disease and it can also vary from one individual to the next.
Some of the symptoms which you should definitely look out for include the following:
Sore and Stiff Muscles
Some of the earliest signs are often sore and stiff muscles. Obviously this can also be accounted for too different reasons however it is often found with people who have Parkinson’s disease. There are no specific types of muscles as it can affect muscles all around the body.
Walking Difficulties
Many people who suffer from this illness will also have difficulties getting around and will also have problems with keeping their balance.
This is why you often find that people with this disease will only be able to walk around by using small steps for example and they will often have big difficulties turning around with ease. They will also be slower in all movements which are also called bradykinesia.
Tremors
One of the most common symptoms is the tremors and this is how people often realize that they might actually have Parkinson’s.  Most of the times these tremors are only in one side of the body and are particularly in an arm or hand.
