Dear Anonymous
Parkinson's Disease is a neuro-degenerative disease that affects the locomotion of a person and makes the patient slow, stiff and is also associated with tremors at rest and loss of balance. There is a no definitive known etiology but varied causative factors have been implicated including both genetic and environmental. There is recent interest in the non motor symptoms heralding the motor symptoms and leading to increased morbidity of the disease. This is in nutshell the Parkinson's disease.
