In brief: 4 major signs

The 4 major signs of parkinson's disease are resting tremor, bradykinesia (slowed movements), rigidity (stiffness) and loss of postural reflexes (imbalance).
However, not every patient with parkinson's disease has all the signs and some medications such as the anti-psychotic drugs can produce similar symptoms.
