Parkinson’s disease: Muscle signs can include stiffness, rigidity and tightness

0

Rigidity, while seldom the main symptom early in Parkinson’s, is experienced as a stiffness of the arms or legs beyond what would result from normal aging or arthritis, said the Parkinson’s Foundation

The charity added: “Some people call it “tightness” in their limbs.

“Stiffness can occur on one or both sides of the body and contribute to a decreased range of motion.

“This can lead to problems with achiness or pain in the muscles or joints affected.”
