Parkinson's disease early symptoms

First symptoms parkinson

Parkinson's disease is due to the lack of production of a chemical called dopamine, which produces the brain. Dopamine is one of the mood of the people, and also is responsible for controlling the movements of our body. The lack of dopamine causes signs and symptoms that appear progressively. That's why it sometimes is difficult to diagnose the disease at an early stage.

The difficulty of a diagnosis early is an added problem, because early detection of the disease is key to mitigating its effects and slow down the progression of the disease.

This disease does not have a unique key symptom, so we don't want to raise unnecessary concerns, since all of them separately do not have greater importance. It is if you notice several of the following symptoms, it is convenient to consult with your doctor to rule out other possible pathology or disease.

Early symptoms of Parkinson's disease

  • Tremors: Tremors in the hands, fingers, or even lips.
  • Changes in the size and shape of your writing. If you type each time with a small letter or note that it has changed its lyrics suddenly can be an early symptom of the disease.
  • Loss of sense of smell, especially in some foods such as cinnamon or vinegar which have a very characteristic odor.
  • Sudden movements during deep sleep: move very much, giving punched or even fall out of the bed.
  • Difficulty walking or moving arms. The feeling of having your feet stuck in the ground or can not move arms.
  • Constipation. This is a symptom that is common in many diseases, or produced by stress or sedentary lifestyle. By itself is of no importance.
  • Changes in the volume of voice: talking increasingly with a lower tone of voice.
  • Protrusion of back or sudden changes in our body position.
