Were you looking for information about Parkinson's Disease? Parkingson is a common misspelling of Parkinson's disease.
People who have Parkinson's disease may experience symptoms such as tremors, a fixed facial expression, or slow movements. Although the exact cause of Parkinson's disease is not yet known, it is known that this disease results from the loss of a certain chemical in the brain called dopamine. Because the early symptoms of Parkinson's disease may be vague and mimic symptoms of other conditions (such as normal aging), it may be difficult for healthcare providers to diagnose this condition. Once it is diagnosed, your healthcare provider may recommend medications, lifestyle changes, or surgery.
