In Parkinson, we want to share the inspiring stories of people with PD. Today we share the story of Amy. She was only 48 years old and worked as a law professor. Amy's story began in a similar way to many patients with Parkinson's disease. She noticed the stiffness and chronic pain of fingers running through her wrists and arms. This was accompanied by shocks and vibrations that occurred throughout the body for no apparent reason. This then developed into intense fatigue and another common symptom of PD, a change in voice to a deeper, deeper tone. When it affects her life she went to the doctor and she diagnosed with Parkinson disease two years ago. Let discuss what is Parkinson, symptoms, causes, and prevention.
It is the progressive disease of the nervous system that affects the movements of the individual. The symptoms gradually appear, sometimes they start with a barely noticeable tremor in the hand. Tremors are common, but the disorder usually also causes rigidity or slows down the movement. Face shows no or little expression in the early stages of Parkinson's disease. Arms can not weigh while walking. Your speech can become soft or confusing. The symptoms of Parkinson's disease worsen with the progression of the disease.
Although Parkinson's can not be cured, medications can greatly improve the symptoms. Sometimes the doctor recommends surgery to regulate some areas of the brain and improve symptoms.
