Parkinson’s disease (PD): It is also known as a movement disorder that mainly affects a person's ability to perform regular activities. It is a chronic (long-term) and progressive disorder that can worsen with time if proper treatment is not provided at the right time. Some of the common symptoms faced by many persons include tremors at rest, stiffness of the limbs, slowness of movement, difficulty in movement or walking, and impaired balance. Other motor symptoms include trouble in solving problems, small handwriting, stooped posture, etc. This disease also affects the brain's ability to work properly, such as sleep disturbances, reduced ability to smell, depression, fatigue, and anxiety. However, the symptoms of this disease vary from person to person. There are certain neurons present in the brain that are responsible for making dopamine. This neurotransmitter helps to regulate the movement of the body. Loss of dopamine is supposed to be the primary reason for the occurrence of Parkinson's disease. Treatment with medicines and physiotherapy may help control the symptoms and provide a quality life for as long as possible.
