Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease symptoms and signs may vary from person to person. Parkinson’s disease is a movement disorder that progresses slowly. Symptoms often begin on one side of your body and usually remain worse on that side, even after symptoms begin to affect both sides.

Causes Parkinson’s Disease

Body movements are regulated by a portion of the brain called the basal ganglia, whose cells require a proper balance of two substances called dopamine and acetylcholine, both involved in the transmission of nerve impulses. arkinson’s disease is a form of parkinsonism. This is a more general term used to refer to the set of symptoms that is commonly associated with Parkinson’s disease but sometimes stems from other causes.

Two Causes Parkinson’s Disease

  1. Environmental factors

    Exposure to certain toxins or environmental factors may increase the risk of later Parkinson’s disease, but the risk is relatively small. Exposure to heavy metals has been proposed to be a risk factor, through possible accumulation in the substantia nigra, but studies on the issue have been inconclusive.

  2. Genetics

    Researchers have identified specific genetic mutations that can cause Parkinson’s disease, but these are uncommon except in rare cases with many family members affected by Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s Disease traditionally has been considered a non-genetic disorder; however, around 15% of individuals with PD have a first-degree relative who has the disease.
