A REVIEW ON PARKINSON’S DISEASE
Shahbaz Ahmad*, Pritt Verma, Amresh Gupta, Amit K. Srivastava and Om Prakash Verma
Parkinson's disease is a common movement condition seen in neurology, but it's difficult to diagnose and treat. Since PD patients experience a wide range of motor and non-motor symptoms, the diagnosis is clinical and can be challenging. The medical care of Parkinson's disease patients is complicated due to a shortage of drug options and the use of levodopa as the mainstay of treatment. However, in Parkinson's disease patients taking levodopa, levodopa induced dyskinesia (LID) is normal. This is a typical side effect that occurs after a long period of treatment, but it may also occur after a few days or months of treatment. Different surgical techniques, such as unilateral pallidotomy and deep brain stimulation, have shown outstanding results in PD patients who are unable to control their symptoms with drugs alone.
