Today, April 11th 2019 is World Parkinson’s Day!
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects predominately dopamine-producing (“dopaminergic”) neurons in a specific area of the brain called substantia nigra.
Symptoms generally develop slowly over years. The progression of symptoms is often a bit different from one person to another due to the diversity of the disease. People with PD may experience:
Tremor, Bradykinesia, Limb rigidity, Gait and balance problems.
We know from research that people don’t think Parkinson’s is a serious condition. And people with Parkinson’s have told us they don’t feel understood
2019 Theme is #KeyToPD, because we want to know your key to living well with PD. Whether you are living with PD, are a caregiver or a healthcare professional, tell us your tip.
