Symptoms are the characteristics of a disease, which doctors take to be evidence of that disease. Parkinson’s symptoms can be divided into motor and non-motor symptoms.
Bradykinesia or slowness of movement is one of the three main signs of Parkinson’s, along with tremor and rigidity (stiffness). Taken from Greek words meaning ‘slow’ and ‘movement’.
Dystonia occurs when your muscles do not relax after they have tightened or shortened. Why this happens is not fully understood but it seems to be related to changes in the messages.
Parkinson’s affects movement, and this includes movement of the eyes. People with Parkinson’s may well experience eye problems, especially as the condition progresses.
