10 Early Warning Signs of Parkinson’s Disease

4. Slouching

Slouching is usually associated with old age. It can also be the result of back injury. However, it could be a sign of Parkinson’s disease. This occurs gradually where the patient loses his or her control over the skeletal muscles. In the case of injury, patients will normally regain their upright posture. In PD cases, slouching worsens as the disease progresses.

3. Dizziness and fainting

Most people will experience a bout of dizziness when they stand up at a point in their life. This occurs when the blood pressure suddenly drops. However, dizziness and fainting on a regular basis can be a sign of the onset of Parkinson’s disease. In some cases, dizziness can also be caused by drugs used to treat PD.
