Parkinson's is a complex condition that affects different people in different ways.
The symptoms most often associated with Parkinson's affect movement. These are often called motor symptoms.
No two people with Parkinson's have the same symptoms.

However, there are other symptoms that aren't related to movement, such as pain and depression. These are known as non-motor symptoms.
The symptoms that people with Parkinson's may get are listed below.
It's important to remember that everyone's experience of Parkinson's is different. Not everyone will experience all of these symptoms.
