Parkinson's disease strikes people in many different ways, leaving them to experience a broad range of symptoms. Though symptoms may be mild or severe or occur frequently or infrequently, Parkinson's disease appears to have five different stages

 

 

Stage two: In the second stage of Parkinson's disease, the person's symptoms are bilateral, affecting both limbs and both sides of the body. The person usually encounters problems walking or maintaining balance, and the inability to complete normal physical tasks becomes more apparent.

 

 

Stage three: Stage three symptoms of Parkinson's disease can be rather severe and include the inability to walk straight or to stand. There is a noticeable slowing of physical movements in stage three.

Many people with Parkinson's disease have difficulty swallowing because they lose control of their mouth and throat muscles. As a result, chewing and managing solid foods can be difficult.

 

Swallowing problems increase the risk of aspiration (inhaling fluid or stomach contents into the lungs) and pneumonia

 

You may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

 

 Choking

 Coughing or throat clearing during meals

--  Difficulty moving food or liquid from the front of the mouth to be swallowed

 Loss of liquid or food from the mouth

 Drooling

 Slowed chewing

 increased time required to eat a meal

 Feeling food or liquid sticking in the throat

 Increased difficulty swallowing pills

 Weakened cough or changes in voice

1. HRC has moderately-advanced and swiftly-progressing Parkinson's disease - this is a degenerative neurological disorder with many potential effects including inability to initiate movements (Akinesia or freezing), tremor and rigidity/ stiffness; including a high prevalence of dementia of the Lewy Body type (including episodes of delirium with hallucinations and delusions - although the baseline Parkinsonian state is blunted emotions and a mask-like inexpressive face).

An Akinesia/ freezing episode looks like this:



Note how the freeze episode is triggered by the need to step-off a curb - a classic Parkinsonian symptom of Akinesia - and the subject does not 'stumble' or trip on the curb (that is the mass media telling you what you are supposed to see) - but is standing frozen, unable to initiate the movements needed to step-off the curb, and stiffly resisting moving forwards, having to be dragged bodily and off-balance. 

2. She is being treated with L-dopa - but this drug many significant side effects, including dystonic movement disorders; 'manic' types of hyper-emotionality; alternating ('On-Off') with episodes of freezing - i.e. being unable to step forward (see the later parts of the movie 'Awakenings' for these problems.)

 

 

At the rate the disease is apparently progressing; within days, weeks or at most months HRC is quite likely to be in a high intensity care facility
