Parkinson’s disease is a degenerative disease of the nervous system that affects the brain’s regulation of body movements and muscles. It is common for those affected by Parkinson’s to experience shakiness, tremors, poor balance, difficulty speaking, and stiff muscles. These symptoms already make it difficult for Parkinson’s patients to live without care or assistance and because it is a degenerative disease, these symptoms will get worse over time.

Parkinson’s disease develops when nerve cells in the brain responsible for producing dopamine begin to break down and die. The brain will lose its ability to regulate body movements normally as the levels of dopamine drop. This causes the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease to develop including rigid muscles, tremors, loss of automatic movements, impaired posture and balance, and difficulty speaking.
As Parkinson’s disease continues to develop, the symptoms will get worse. Those affected may experience the following in the later stages of the disease:
- Cognitive issues: Those affected by Parkinson’s are likely to eventually experience dementia and general cognitive decline.
- Depression: Fear, anxiety, and depression are common in those in the early stages of the disease.
- Swallowing and eating issues: Muscles that help with chewing and swallowing food may become affected which makes it harder for Parkinson’s patients to eat and increases their risk of choking.
- Sleeping issues: Those suffering from Parkinson’s may have difficulty staying asleep and wake up throughout the night.
- Toileting issues: It can be difficult to urinate or control the bladder with the loss of muscle control. Constipation may also occur as a result of slow digestion.
