Parkinson’s in a neurodegenerative progressive disease. In Parkinson’s disease, dopamine neurons are specifically affected. The chemical dopamine is really important for allowing us to make normal movements. When these neurons are affected and dopamine levels decrease, the main movement signs of Parkinson’s begin to form. One of these signs is shakiness, which is often in the form of a tremor in the hand or finger. Another is stiffness, and this is felt when the person bends part of their body. The third sign is slowed down movement. Slowed movement is taking longer to complete a movement. A good example of this is movement when you’re in water. The fourth issue is problem with balance which is feeling really unsteady, or really unstable when walking or standing. Problems with balance usually occurs after the progression of the disease, so shakiness, tremors and slow-movement are the typical signs of diagnosis parkinsons.
