Parkinson's is a degenerative neurological disease; it progresses slowly, meaning that the onset symptoms typically happen slowly over a long period. There's no scientific proof of why this illness occurs, but evidence shows that when it does, the brain begins to decline and impacts dopamine production. This neurotransmitter is responsible for brain-to-muscle communication so that patients experience a loss of motor function.
In most cases, patients live for 10-20 years after their initial diagnosis, which usually happens around 60. These patients will begin with symptoms slowly appearing and advancing as time goes off. The most common symptoms are tremors and shaking, as well as slowness and stiffness known as Bradykinesia. Other symptoms include trouble with balance, falls due to postural instability, confusion, and fatigue. These symptoms can be best treated with Parkinson's care services.
