In most cases, the disease begins with a tremor of one hand, which is most vivid at rest, in motion it is reduced, is absent during sleep, increases with emotional tension and fatigue. As the disease develops, a tremor can become less noticeable. Often there is stiffness in the muscles of the body, without a tremor. As the stiffness is in progress, movements increasingly slow down and become hard to start. A face becomes maschera di Parkinson, a mouth is half open.
