Parkinson’s disease is a chronic and progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects movement and motor control. It occurs due to the loss of dopamine-producing neurons in the brain, leading to a reduction of dopamine levels and resulting in a range of symptoms. These may include tremors, stiffness, difficulty with coordination and balance, cognitive impairment, sleep disorders, mood changes and more.

The exact cause of Parkinson’s disease is not known, but it is believed to result from a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Medications and other treatments can help manage the symptoms and improve quality of life. In some cases, surgery may also be recommended.

You can consult Dr. Anand, neurophysician at chandanagar, incase you experience symptoms such as tremors in the limbs, rigidity or stiffness, slowness of movement, difficulty with balance and coordination, changes in speech, writing, posture, mood or behavior, or cognitive changes such as memory loss. A neurologist can diagnose Parkinson’s disease, determine the underlying cause of symptoms, and provide appropriate treatment and management options. The neurologist can also monitor the progression of the disease and make adjustments to the treatment plan as needed.
