A loss of muscle control is the major effect of Parkinson’s Disease. It usually starts with small tremors and stiffness in the extremities and progresses from there. How quickly Parkinson’s advances in based on the individual and can be hard to predict.

Parkinson’s is the result of a structural change in the brain, the cause of which is still unknown. The dopamine receptors in the brain stop functioning and are not replaced with new receptor cells. When the brain does not get enough dopamine, it cannot properly manage muscle movements.

Early symptoms of Parkinson’s include:

  • Drooling
  • Impaired balance
  • Slow blinking
  • Muscle aches
  • Monotone voice
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Slow speech

Parkinson’s usually develops in adults over the age of 60. As you get older, your risk of developing this disease increases. There is a genetic component making people with Parkinson’s Disease in their families more likely to develop it themselves. Also, more men than women end up with Parkinson’s.
