Frustrating isn't it? That feeling of little control is just a bit of what Parkinson's Disease feels like. That's why patients need a lot of support.

Parkinson's Disease is a degenerative disease of the central nervous system. Brain Cells that control movement, postures and balance begin to die slowly. The reasons for this disease are now being established. The disease is usually not inherited.

Symptoms ::
Infrequent blinking. No facial expressions. Slowness and tremors in movement.Shaky posture.Shuffling gait. Rigidity of limbs. Periods of "freezing" in place when trying to walk.Speech becomes monotonous. Dementia and depression occurs in 50% of cases.

Treatment ::
Physiotherapy, High-fibre diet. Stay active. Take slow, careful walks when you are at your stongest. Avoid caffeine alcohol, and daytime naps. You will be more likely to get a good nights sleep. Standing up straight and moving your feet about 8 in. apart improves balance.Drugs are now available that can slow down the progress of the disease when it is diagnosed early. Consult your doctor.
