The symptoms of Parkinson's disease often develop in no particular order and usually begin slowly, before gradually developing.
The disease affects people in many different ways and has different levels of severity.
It's extremely important to be aware of the symptoms of Parkinson's:
- Tremor/uncontrollable shaking
- Slowness of movement
- Muscle stiffness and cramps
- Depression and anxiety
- Disrupted thinking patterns
It's estimated that Parkinson's affects 1 in 500 people and there are currently 127,000 people with the condition in the UK.
