The Chase star Paul Sinha told audiences to “appreciate life” when he appeared on Friday’s Loose Women to discuss having Parkinson’s disease.
Paul, 51, was diagnosed with a progressive nervous system disorder in May 2019, but told the Loose Women panel he was “trying to cope”.
Key panelist Kaye Adams started the conversation by saying, “This week is Parkinson’s Awareness Week, Paul, may I ask how you are?”
“To be honest with you, I was diagnosed in 2019, which is a bit of a shock for a system that has spent two years with a troubled right shoulder,” replied The Chaser.
“But to be honest with you, Covid has been more of a part of my life than Parkinson’s because Parkinson’s is a rather slow process compared to a global pandemic,” Paul continued.
“So I’ve had more anxiety with Covid than Parkinson’s because I’m not quite what I was two years ago but I’m still fighting healthy.”
Kaye then asked: “How was it with the shoulder? Is it related to Parkinson’s disease?”
“Obviously,” he replied, before adding: “By the way, don’t panic if you have a stiff shoulder, but a frozen shoulder is clearly a relatively common manifestation of Parkinson’s disease.
“But for a year and a half, I only saw chiropractors, not neurologists,” says Paul.
Asked what advice he would give people who think they may be having symptoms, Paul said: “In general, if you have anything that worries you, the NHS is still one of those. the best thing we have and it’s there for you and you pay tax to use it.
“Go see your GP, if you’re concerned about any aspect of your health, go and seek help. Don’t sit on it like I did for a few months,” he says. said more.
Paul also showed his hand to the board and said he had a “slight tremor”, but stressed that it was “not a complicated phenomenon in many people’s cases”.
As the show ended, Paul referred to an earlier segment about visiting elderly relatives and told viewers, “Treasure life.”
Viewers thoroughly enjoyed the interview and took to Twitter to comment, with one person writing: “I like Paul better now #loosewomen.”
And another tweeted: “#LooseWomen The Chase wouldn’t be the same without Paul Sinha.”
Loose Women airs at 12:30pm on weekdays on ITV and ITV Hub.
