How Common Is Parkinson’s?
What Are the Symptoms of Parkinson's?
If you or a loved one start to notice these symptoms on one side of your body, it’s a good idea to reach out to your medical provider for a checkup as soon as possible. In many cases, people don’t get diagnosed with Parkinson’s until after the disease has steadily progressed and has affected both sides of the body, so seeing a doctor early on in the process can help you get the treatment you may need.
- Slowed movement (bradykinesia)
- Rigid muscles
- Impaired posture and balance
- Loss of automatic movements, such as blinking, smiling, or swallowing
- Speech changes
- Writing changes
How Does Parkinson’s Affect Your Body?
Parkinson’s often starts with slight tremors in your hands or feet, stiffness in muscles, and with slower movements. Once it progresses, however, these symptoms will worsen and make daily tasks much more difficult. You may start to notice signs of mental disorders as well, such as anxiety and confusion, during the later stages.
Progression of Parkinson's
During this stage, you may not even notice symptoms at first. Tremors and muscle rigidity are the most common signs during this stage, but since Parkinson’s mostly affects older individuals, many patients attribute these to growing older. However, if you do notice signs in time and see your doctor, they may be able to prescribe medication, which often helps with any tremors or stiffness.
What Is Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)?
Transcranial magnetic stimulation is a non-invasive brain stimulation therapy that allows doctors to stimulate certain nerve cells. This type of treatment has been found to be effective for certain mental disorders, such as depression or obsessive-compulsive disorder. More recently, however, TMS for Parkinson’s has shown improvement for certain symptoms of the disease.
