Parkinson's disease ? "A little old bent, walking hurt and trembling hands": this is how we imagine most often. For one who learns that he has it, especially if he is young (10% of people under 50 years), the diagnosis is a terrible ordeal. How to live with a neurodegenerative disease gradually movements and intellectual faculties, and therefore the relationship with the surrounding world?

 

Through the diary of a patient demonstrating uncompromising of his daily, this book shows that nothing is yet lost cause: the evolution of the disease is often slow, it may be marked by long remissions. Each symptom is here first described the patient's point of view and from that of a neurologist who explains the events and exhibits treatments, treatments evolving and increasingly effective because research is very active.
