Early in the course of disease symptoms include (1) shaking (tremor) (2) rigidity (3) slowness of movement (bradykinesia) and (4) difficulty with walking and gait (postural instability). Later, cognitive and behavioral problems may arise, with dementia commonly occurring in the advanced stages of the disease. Other symptoms include sensory, sleep and emotional problems.
