Thank you for posting your query.

Parkinson's disease (PD) is a degenerative disease of brain, which is characterised by slowness of all movements, stiffness of limbs, tremors of hands & feet, and imbalance.

It continues to progress in severity, as there is no medicine to cure this disease.

However, there are several good medicines available to make a patient with PD better.

You should consult a good neurologist to get her evaluated and adjust her medications.

In some cases, deep brain stimulation surgery may be beneficial.

Best wishes,
