Stage 1 = mild
Stage 2 = moderate
Stage 3 = complex
Stage 4 = advance
Stage 5= end of life
Pd can also jump up in half steps ie stage 3.5 and stage 5 although called end of life pd is not terminal you die WITH pd not BECAUSE of pd.
You can see a variety of all symptoms at each stage the only differences they gradually will get worse and sometimes you can develop other symptoms as you condition gets worse. But as we don't all get the same symptoms that's an impossible question to answer. The Parkinson's UK forum has a list of what symptoms can develop I recommend that you look on that and have a look it's also a free charity to join it. Doesn't matter where you live in the world you can still join.
Their website is very informative most of what I've learnt I've learnt through that website best wishes good luck BB x

My tablet for some reason or the other refuses to have your Betty any other way.I have reset it so many times it is unreal The second best it is ok with.
Opinions are like your head everyone has one.I personally appreciate the information you download People are always asking the 5 steps of Parkinson's. Yet, when you download it they you don't want to see steps 4 an 5
My Neurologist said he has never had person to die from Parkinson's. That there is always something else..
Again thank you for all the information you bring to our attention. Take Care God Bless Hugs 😃😃😃😃
Sorry to disagree with you BB. Not sure I would want to know or follow the stages that someone has designated my disease will follow till death, Sort of cuts out hope and intervention. We are also creatures who are influenced by our own and others’ expectations. So I guess I’ll not follow the chart and hope my graph will be different.
Totally agree but unfortunately doesn't work for everyone not everyone is capable of exercising like mad personally my DBS system has been the best decision I ever made considering I'm stage 5 now and yet most Newly trained neurologist can't tell I've got Parkinson's anymore because it is so effective I actually called it dog's bollocks surgery.
