How is Parkinson’s disease diagnosed?

Parkinson’s disease is a brain disorder that is diagnosed based upon one’s medical history, symptoms, and examinations. Parkinson’s disease gets progressively worse overtime and the expected lifespan of an individual with Parkinson’s disease is around 10 to 20 years after being diagnosed. Individuals usually begin to experience symptoms at around 60 years of age. Here are some early warning signs of Parkinson’s disease:

  1. Tremor or Shaking. A tremor or shaking is the most common symptom of Parkinson’s disease. This usually begins in one’s hands or fingers and progressively spreads to other areas of the body.
  2. Slowed movement. Individuals may experience slowed movement overtime. Their ability to perform simple, independent tasks may become difficult and time consuming. Patients may decide to hire in-home care at this time to assist with daily tasks.
  3. Rigid muscles. Patients with Parkinson’s disease may experience muscle stiffness throughout the body. This can be painful and limit one’s range of motion.
  4. Poor posture and balance. Individuals with Parkinson’s may exhibit a stooped posture or poor balance.
  5. Loss of automatic movements. Automatic movements can become inhibited. These movements were once performed unconsciously such as smiling, blinking, walking, biking, etc….

If someone you know is experiencing these symptoms, speak with a doctor as soon as possible. If someone you know is already diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease and their symptoms are getting worse, maybe it’s time to hire live-in home care. Research different home care agencies that offer Parkinson’s care. A Caring Hand Services has a wide range of hourly and live-in home care services.

  5. My husband was diagnosed of Parkinsons disease 2 years ago, when he was 59. He had a stooped posture, tremors, right arm does not move and also a pulsating feeling in his body. He was placed on Senemet for 8 months and then Siferol was introduced and replaced the Senemet, during this time span he was also diagnosed with dementia. He started having hallucinations, lost touch with reality. Suspecting it was the medication I took him off the Siferol (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started him on PD natural herbal formula we ordered from TREE OF LIFE HEALTH CLINIC, his symptoms totally declined over a 3 weeks use of the TREE OF LIFE HEALTH Parkinsons disease natural herbal formula. He is now almost 61 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed!  (www .treeoflifeherbalclinic .com)
