"Everyone has a thorn in the side," said Shelbyville resident Alton Webb. "Parkinson happens to be mine."
What Webb describes as a "thorn" in his side is Parkinson's Disease--a chronic, progressive, neurological disorder, symptoms of which include hand tremor, slowness of movement, limb stiffness, and difficulty with gait and balance.
A thorn indeed.
Even though there is no cure for this disease, there is medication that can help somewhat with treating some of the symptoms of the disease, which can be very debilitating.
