Horizon Awakening the Frozen Addicts

Parkinsonism (imprisonment in their own bodies)

Parkinsonism is an environmental disease also known as atypical Parkinson’s that is very similar to Parkinson’s disease. Both diseases occur from the death of cells producing dopamine causing a lack of dopamine in the brain. This allows the thought of movement to not be translated to the act of movement in the brain. Basically, patients with Parkinsonism knew in their brain that they needed to move, but could not know how to allow their muscles to perform the movement.
The only difference with Parkinsonism is that, the induced drug automatically damaged the Substantia Nigra, which produces dopamine. Both diseases include symptoms such as tremor, hyperkinesia, rigidity, impaired speech, inability to blink, loss of facial expressions, muscle stiffness and slow movements. Parkinson’s disease is mainly found in elder people and usually develops over a longer period of time. One of the effects found in Parkinson’s is the degeneration of the basal ganglia, which results in movement impairment. Parkinsonism first appeared in patients who were of a younger age and it occurred automatically after taking a drug that was thought to be heroin, but was created using different chemicals one of which was MPTP.
L-DOPA is a treatment for Parkinson’s disease.
By using L-DOPA to patients with Parkinsonism, this caused many side effects one was excessive movement that could not be taken under control. In conclusion, Parkinson’s disease is a severe aging disease. The cause of Parkinson’s disease still remains unknown. Parkinson’s may have both genetic and environmental risk factors, but it is still indeterminate as to what the actual cause is.
