The Alphabet Game...Round 1

Let's Play The Alphabet Game.

This will be Round 1. We take turns posting words having to do with anything about PARKINSON'S. I'll begin with an A word having to do with Parkinson's and the next person will post a B word and so on until we get to the letter Z.

Whomever posts the Z Word in our ABC game can (if they want) begin a new ABC game thread with a new SUBJECT for us to post to. The new subject for ABC doesn't have to be Parkinson's related. It could be anything from song titles, types of cars, candy...ANYTHING, or it could even be another PD round using new words for each letter!

So, now that I've tried to explain it, let's have fun! Here's The ABC's of PARKINSON's. round 1. I'll begin with our A word:

ARTANE (a medication prescribed for PD)

Essential tremor.. The tremor may be a rhythmic "back-and-forth" or "to-and-fro" movement produced by involuntary (unintentional) contractions of the muscle. Severity of the tremors can vary greatly from hour to hour and day to day.
