Parkinson’s disease: One of the 'main' signs which is not a tremor – common early symptoms

Parkinson’s UK says that around 145,000 people live with Parkinson’s in the UK, and that it is “the fastest growing neurological condition in the world”.

It explains that Parkinson’s develops when cells in the brain stop working properly and are lost over time.

These brain cells produce a chemical called dopamine.“Symptoms start to appear when the brain can’t make enough dopamine to control movement properly,” Parkinson’s UK says.

Researchers do not yet know exactly why people get Parkinson’s, but it is thought that a combination of age, genetic and environmental factors cause the dopamine-producing nerve cells to die.
