Parkinson's disease by: natalie wood
Morris Partain was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease when he was 60 years old. He was 81 when he passed away. Parkinson's disease is a progressive disease of the nervous system marked my tremors, slow movement. it is associated with a deficiency of a neurotransmitter dopamine. in the beginning he got just the tremors part. He started getting more frustrated because he could do the things he used to do. he started choking on any thing he would try to eat. he started having trouble with the strength in his legs. he had to sit up to sleep because he would choke on his saliva. he lost his voice and was tired a lot. you go to a detailed neurological exam and that is the only way you can tell you have PD. the only treatment to help is medicine. you can not do any therapy for PD. after so long your body will just give up because you cant eat you cant walk.
