The symptoms of Parkinson’s disease starts out with normally just the shaking in one hand, then it can spread to different parts of your body or just stay in your hands. As symptoms get worse, it can cause you to slur when you speak, shake constantly and not be able to get up and function like normal.As of right now, there is no cause for why so many people get this disease, it is just assumed to be what you grew up around and things you use on your body.
