Parkinson's disease is a condition in which part of the brain becomes progressively more damaged over many years (a progressive neurological condition). Symptoms caused by the deficiency of a chemical in the brain called Dopamine; why it happens, nobody knows.

 

Not fatal but progressive and incurable and, with time, severely affects quality of life. It was first highlighted as a condition by the English doctor James Parkinson in 1817. He had 6 patients with involuntary shaking of arms and legs and body. The condition was originally called shaking palsy.
