Tremor and Fine Movement
Tremor, described by some as ‘shaking’ or ‘fumble fingers’ is a common Parkinson’s symptom, however not all people with Parkinson’s have tremor. People who experience tremor may find it difficult at times to carryout fiddly or fine motor tasks.
Fine motor issues can also result from reduced dexterity which may be associated with other symptoms such as stiffness, rigidity, and slowness of movement.
Signs of reduced fine motor ability can include:
- Small handwriting (micrographia)
- Difficulty typing
- Difficulty doing up buttons or picking up change
