Rock star Ozzy Osbourne, 71 old, has revealed he has Parkinson's disease. His problems started when he suffered a fall at the family home last April and underwent surgery.
The main symptoms of disease are involuntary shaking, slow movement and stiff and inflexible muscles. A person with Parkinson's can also experience a wide range of other physical and psychological symptoms, including depression and anxiety, balance problems, loss of sense of smell, problems sleeping and memory problems. In an intervew, Osbourne revealed he'd spent the last year in constant pain, describing it as the most miserable time of his life. "It's not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination but it does effect the nerves in your body. It's like you'll have a good day, then a good day and then a really bad day," his wife Sharon explained. Ozzy and Sharon have been married 38 years.
Osbourne is an English singer, songwriter, actor and television personality. He has a star on the Birmingham Walk of Stars in his hometown, as well as the Hollywood Walk of Fame. At the 2014 MTV Europe Music Awards he received the Global Icon Award. In 2015 Osbourne received the Ivor Novello Award for Lifetime Achievement from the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors.
