Parkinson’s is a complex condition that affects different people in different ways. Each person living with Parkinson’s has its own individual experience. Symptoms differ from one person to the other. No two people with Parkinson’s have the same symptoms and the same effectiveness of the treatment.
The symptoms most often associated with Parkinson’s affect movement. These are often called motor symptoms. However, there are other symptoms that aren’t related to movement, such as pain and depression. These are known as non-motor symptoms. The common symptoms that people with Parkinson’s may get are listed below.
It’s important to remember that everyone’s experience of Parkinson’s is different. Not everyone will experience all of these symptoms.
The order in which symptoms appear and the way symptoms progress also varies from one to another.
