In brief: 4 main symptoms

The cardinal symptoms of pd include resting tremor (such as the "pill-rolling" tremor you may have seen muhammad ali suffering from); bradykinesia (slow movement, shuffling pattern when walking), rigidity (resistance to passive movement of a limb), and instability when standing (seen with more advanced disease).
There can be other craniofacial, visual, musculoskeletal, and gait symptoms, too.
