The symptom that will make it evident that the patient is suffering from bradykinesia has to be letter D. When there is no spontaneous movement from the patient, this is a sign of the manifestation of the disease. Parkinson’s is actually a progressive disease. It does not start so bad in the beginning but it worsens over time.

This affects the nervous system. It may start out as a tremor but later on, other types of movement may also become affected. This usually starts in middle-aged to elderly people but there are some cases wherein people who are not quite middle-aged yet, but they are already diagnosed with this disease.

Lack of spontaneous movement

Bradykinesia is slowing down from the initiation and execution of movement.
