What is Parkinson's?
When the brain cells (neurons) deteriorate, the result is Parkinson's disease. It is seen as a chronic condition, unlike an acute one, because there is no cure and does not go away on its own.
It is also a degenerative disease, which means it destroys the body of the attacking person. Muscle control is lost due to a lack of dopamine in the brain and therefore difficulty walking, coordination, and strong shaking.
Parkinson's disease is also not easy to diagnose. There are no blood tests or brain tests that definitively show the condition – doctors diagnose it based on the process of elimination and the patient's symptoms.
Other signs of this disease are: confused, small walking, narrow handwriting, muffled speech, depression, and stiff facial expressions.
There are doctors, neurologists who specialize in treating neurological disorders and even more specifically doctors who specialize in Parkinson's disease.
In Parkinson's disease, cells begin to die or become damaged in a part of the brain called the ingra. These cells are very important because they produce a chemical called dopamine.
These chemicals are responsible for the smooth and coordinated movement of the muscles of the body. According to the National Parkinson's Foundation, "Parkinson's disease symptoms occur when about 80% of the dopamine-producing cells are damaged.
