This degenerative neurological disease progresses very slowly, which means the onset symptoms typically don't show right away. Scientists have not found proof of what causes this illness, but evidence shows that the brain does begin to decline and impacts the production of dopamine. This neurotransmitter is responsible for brain-to-muscle communication so that patients experience a loss of motor function.
Most seniors can live 10-20 years after being initially diagnosed. Initial diagnosis typically happens around the age of 60, 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 common symptoms are trouble with balance, falls due to postural instability, confusion, and fatigue. These symptoms can be best treated with Parkinson's care services.
