Parkinson’s disease is a progressive neurological movement disorder. The first signs are problems with movement. Symptoms start gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand. Tremors are common, but the disorder also commonly causes stiffness or slowing of movement. Parkinson’s disease symptoms worsen as your condition progresses over time. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects predominately dopamine-producing (“dopaminergic”) neurons in a specific area of the brain called substantia nigra.
- A tremor, or shaking, usually begins in a limb, often your hand or fingers.
- Slowed movement (bradykinesia).
- Blank facial expression
- A tendency to get stuck when walking
- Muffled, low-volume speech
- Decreased blinking and swallowing
- Tendency to fall backward
- Reduced arm swinging when walking
- Stooped posture
- Rigid muscles.
- Impaired posture and balance.
- Loss of automatic movements. You may have a decreased ability to perform unconscious movements, including blinking, smiling or swinging your arms when you walk.
- Decreased ability to smell (anosmia)
- small, cramped handwriting
- Voice changes
- Parkinson gait which is the tendency to take shuffling steps while walking
- Flaky white or yellow scales on oily parts of the skin, known as seborrheic dermatitis
- Sleep disturbances including vivid dreams, talking, and movement during sleep
- Psychiatric symptoms like Depression, Anxiety, Hallucinations, Psychosis, problems with attention and memory
- Low dopamine levels
- Parkinson’s disease symptoms mainly result from low or falling Levels of dopamine neurotransmitter. It happens when cells that produce dopamine die in the brain.
- Low norepinephrine levels
- Autoimmune factors
- In Parkinson’s disease, certain nerve cells (neurons) in the brain gradually break down or die. Many of the symptoms are due to a loss of neurons that produce a chemical messenger in your brain called dopamine. When dopamine levels decrease, it causes abnormal brain activity, leading to impaired movement and other symptoms of Parkinson’s disease.
- Environmental triggers: Exposure to certain toxins or environmental factors
As per the latest research The conflict related to the movement of the muscles is a motor conflict of “not being able to move” or “feeling stuck”.
- Facial muscles: losing face (loss of a status, reputation, respect, honor, prestige, dignity; disgrace, humiliation, shame), being exposed, feeling ridiculed, foolish or stupid
- Neck muscles: not being able or allowed to move or turn the head
- Shoulder and back muscles: not being able to get out of the way or step aside
- Arm muscles: being forcefully held down (physical abuse, sexual abuse, in a fight ), not being able to hold or embrace someone or hold someone back ,not being able to push someone away, fight somebody off, or defend oneself
- Hand muscles: not being able to hold on to someone or hold someone back (a loved one who is leaving or dying); not being able to grab something; any distress associated with the hands (work, hobby, or sports-related)
- Leg muscles: not being able to escape, flee, or run away (e.g., from a workplace or a relationship)
Homoeopathy can help to control the further progression of the disease , symptoms can be minimized And most importantly homoeopathy helps to improve the general well- being of the patient thereby improving patients’ confidence.
- Argentum Nitricum: For ataxia (loss of muscle co-ordination), trembling, awkwardness ,Cannot walk with eyes closed. Trembling, with general debility. Paralysis, with mental and abdominal symptoms. Rigidity of calves Debility in calves especially. Walks and stands unsteadily, especially when unobserved.
- Causticum : Local paralysis, vocal cords, muscles of deglutition, of tongue, eyelids, face, bladder and extremities Paralysis of single parts. Dull, tearing pain in hands and arms. Heaviness and weakness. Tearing joints. Unsteadiness of muscles of forearm and hand. Numbness; loss of sensation in hands. Contracted tendons. Weak ankles. Cannot walk without suffering.
- Cuprum : Jerking, twitching of muscles. Coldness of hands. Cramps in palms. Great weariness of limbs. Cramps in calves and soles. Epilepsy; auro begins in knees. Clenched thumbs. Clonic spasms, beginning in fingers and toes and legs
- Zincum Metallicum: The nervous symptoms of most importance. Defective vitality. Impending brain paralysis. Period of depression in disease. Spinal affections. Twitchings. In chronic diseases with brain and spinal symptoms, trembling, convulsive twitching and fidgety feet are guiding symptoms. Lameness, weakness, trembling and twitching of various muscles.
