Healthy fight: The Chase’s Paul Sinha revealed his Parkinson’s symptoms Tuesday night while taking to social media to comment on the episode, apologizing for being ‘talkative’
“You are great Paul,” one wrote, while another added: “Why are you apologizing? You give so many people with Parkinson’s disease hope and inspiration.”
A third said: I think you are a genius! I like your conversation.
Meanwhile, a separate person added his support, writing: “No need at all and good on you, you’re happy.”
It comes after Paul revealed last year how her husband has supported him since he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2019.
The professional was invited to Free Woman during Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Week to talk about his journey so far.
Paul was upfront and honest about how he was feeling, saying, “I’m fine being honest with you.” I was diagnosed in 2019, and it was a shock to the system. Parkinson’s is a slow disease, I’m still fighting my fitness.
Paul went on to explain how supportive his partner Oliver has been and that they are very happy together.
‘My husband, Oliver, is a quiet, practical person,’ he said. He doesn’t get upset about things.

Paul and Oliver tied the knot during the winter of 2019 in front of a small gathering of friends and family.
Paul previously described the year as the best and worst of his life, balancing his newly married life with the whirlwind of an incurable diagnosis.
During the Loose Woman interview, Paul went on to explain how he wasn’t overly romantic before. He said: I am not a very romantic person. I never thought I would get married.
He continued with his trademark humor, “I just got drunk at Christmas, had a drunken epiphany and realized I wanted him to officially be part of the family.”
You felt great and wanted to spend your day in the sun, right before the pandemic.
If anything, he might be better than me. But if he’s looking for my job, he can back out now! ”
In May 2019, Paul was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease at the age of 49, after which he vowed to “fight with every breath I have.”
In a blog at the time, he said he was initially “in shock”, but “feels more prepared for the new challenges ahead” now that he has a treatment plan in place.
The love: It comes after Paul revealed last year how his husband Oliver (pictured together) has supported him since he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2019.
Displaying his trademark humor, he also joked that a Dancing On Ice appearance was now “out of the question,” before thanking his family and fiancee for their support in the wake of his diagnosis.
Parkinson’s disease is a condition in which parts of the brain are progressively damaged.
The three main symptoms are: involuntary shaking (tremor), slow movement, and stiff and inflexible muscles.
As the condition progresses, the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease can get worse.
Parkinson’s disease does not directly kill people, but the condition can put a lot of stress on the body.
Paul, who has been the fourth chaser, known as ‘The Smiling Assassin’, since 2011, stands among fellow quiz legends Jenny Ryan, Sean Wallace, Mark Labette and Anne Hegerty in The Chase.
What is Parkinson’s?
Parkinson’s disease affects about 1 in 500 people, including about 1 million Americans.
It causes muscle stiffness, slow movement, tremors, disturbed sleep, chronic fatigue, poor quality of life and can lead to severe disability.
It is a progressive neurological condition that destroys cells in the part of the brain that controls movement.
Dopamine sufferers have been known to be deficient in dopamine because the neurons that make it have died.
There is currently no cure and no way to stop the progression of the disease, but hundreds of scientific trials are under way to try to change that.
The disease claimed the life of boxing legend Muhammad Ali in 2016.
