Re: Stages of PD??
My Dr. never mentions staging. In general stagine is not used much any more.
There are 5 stages. 1.)signs & symptoms on one side, mild symptoms. 2.) symptoms are bilateral (both sides) some disability. 3.) significant slowing of body movement,
difficulty walking. 4.) severe symptoms, no longer able to live alone. 5.) cachetic stage, can not stand or walk.
Some people with PD never progress to the later stages and progression varies in rate and from person to person. Not a good idea TO follow staging (unreliable).
