Parkinson's is a progressive neurological condition. This means that it causes problems in the brain and gets worse over time.

Around 145,000 people live with Parkinson’s in the UK. And it's the fastest growing neurological condition in the world. There are over 40 symptoms of Parkinson’s.

From a tremor or stiffness, to problems with sleep and mental health. Everyone’s experience is different.
