American Parkinson Disease Association's picture

Parkinson’s is characterized by motor problems including slowness of movement, rigidity, and tremor. Balance and gait problems may occur later in the course of illness. Some people may also experience a decrease in facial expression, low voice volume, small handwriting, and difficulty with fine motor movements. A number of non-motor symptoms are associated with Parkinson’s, including fatigue, anxiety, depression, and sleep disturbance. It is important to understand that symptoms are highly variable from person to person. The American Parkinson Disease Association (APDA) Parkinson’s Disease Handbook provides an expanded description of signs and symptoms.
