It's extremely important to be aware of the symptoms of Parkinson's:
- Tremor/uncontrollable shaking

- Muscle stiffness and cramps
- Depression and anxiety
- Disrupted thinking patterns
It's estimated that Parkinson's affects 1 in 500 people and there are currently 127,000 people with the condition in the UK.
