Parkinson’s disease

Parkinson's disease is a disorder of the nervous system that affects the motor functions. It develops gradually, sometimes starting with a barely noticeable tremor in just one hand and also cause stiffness or slowing of movement. Parkinson's disease symptoms and signs may vary from person to person. Symptoms of this kind of disorder include: Tremor, Slowed movement (bradykinesia) Rigid muscles, Impaired posture and balance, Loss of automatic movements and Speech and Writing changes.The disorder is caused when certain nerve cells (neurons) in the brain gradually break down or die. Many of the symptoms are due to a loss of neurons that produce a chemical messenger in the brain called dopamine. When dopamine levels decrease, it causes abnormal brain activity, leading to signs of Parkinson's disease.
