Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects predominantly dopamine-producing neurons in a specific area of the brain called substantia nigra. The cause of the problem is due to genetic inheritance where you parents can pass you Parkinson disease, also there 95% of the cases are not genetically inheritance but they still have the disease and scientist could not find the reason for this kind of disease yet. Due to Parkinson’s disease, it can affect your organs
Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter, Which is the body’s chemical messenger which is responsible for communication between nerve cells in the nervous system. Dopamine is found in two areas of the brain. First is the substantia nigra, which is responsible for movement and rewards. If the dopamine is the substantia nigra dies due to the Parkinson disease, which will lead to the tremors and other mobility difficulties. Dopamine is also found in the ventral tegmental area of the brain, which is responsible for the brain’s pleasure and rewards. Dopamine is created in the ventral tegmental area. Brain pleasure is during the time when you are having sex, drugs, alcohol, etc. Releasing dopamine and causing us to feel pleasure from these things is our body’s mechanism to ensure that we continue to do things that we need to do in order to keep the body running optimally and feel healthy.
To find if you have Parkinson’s disease you might find these kinds of symptoms like trouble in sleeping, loss of senses, Trouble moving or walking, your voice is softening, Dizziness, faintness, etc. When you have Parkinson’s disease it can impact individuals and families. You might think how does it impact yourself and your beloved ones? When thinking about yourself it will affect your daily routine and how you live, it can also lead to a financial problem if you’re the one who earns the money. Families will also be impacted as it could lead to the family problem and your family have to work to earn a wage and fulfill the need of you and your family.
When I came across this disease I could not find a cure this disease but the people who suffer from Parkinson’s disease is treated by therapies of physical, occupational, and speech, based on how it affects you. And in some cases, you may need surgery. In my opinion, the possible solution for the disease could be brain transplant where we can change the brain of the patient and the dopamine could generate and the problem could be solved.
To last it up, I would like to say that Parkinson’s disease is a disease that will start to kill dopamine in the brain and start to have problems with your movement and your sense. To cure this disease is not yet found but people are doing therapies to live a better life.
