He then shared a link to his personal blog, which gave further details on his battle.

It read: “On the evening of Thursday May 30th, an experienced consultant neurologist calmly informed me that I had Parkinson’s disease.

“It was a devastating denouement to a medical odyssey that began in September 2017 with a sudden-onset, frozen right shoulder, and took in an unexpected diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes, a lifestyle transformation that enabled me to lose two stone, and a shoulder operation in January this year.

“It has been a really, really tough two weeks. Cancelling my run at the Edinburgh Fringe, missing the World Quizzing Championships to have brain scans, performing club sets whilst emotionally bewildered, and of course working my way through my loved ones, delivering the bad news.

The NHS defines Parkinson’s disease as a “condition in which parts of the brain become progressively damaged over many years.”

  The three main symptoms are love moment, involuntary shaking of particular parts of the body, and stiff and inflexible muscles. The disease is caused by a loss of nerve cells in part of the brain called the substantia nigra, leading to a reduction in a chemical called dopamine in the brain.

Paul continued: “With the diagnosis now confirmed, and a treatment plan in place, I now feel far more prepared for the new challenges ahead.

“I have an amazing family, no strangers to serious medical illness, I’m blessed to have a fiance who is there for me, and I have a multitude of friends and colleagues whom I consider to be exceptional human beings.

“I don’t consider myself unlucky, and whatever the next stage of my life holds for me, many others have it far worse.”

Making lighter of the situation, he added: “Dancing on Ice is, I suspect, out of the question.”

He added that he intended to keep Chasing, writing and performing comedy, and asked to be treated the same as he was prior to his diagnosis, OK Magazine reports.
