April is National Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month

Parkinson’s disease signs and symptoms can be different for everyone. Early signs may be mild and go unnoticed. Symptoms often begin on one side of your body and usually remain worse on that side, even after symptoms begin to affect both sides. Tremors are common, but the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement. Your arms may not swing when you walk. Your speech may become soft or slurred. Parkinson’s disease symptoms worsen as your condition progresses over time.

See your doctor if you have any of the above-mentioned symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease not only to diagnose your condition but also to rule out other causes for your symptoms.
