I know Michael J. Fox has it, and some other celebrities, but what exactly is it? If it is, what am I looking at?

Parkinsons is a neurological disease marked by uncontrollable shaking, pain and stiffening in the joints and unsteadiness, trouble walking etc. It gets progressivly worse and one can become wheel chair bound, however doctors are experimenting with new treatments that can help immensly. You did not mention, however, if you were on any type of medication. Sometimes one can have adverse affects to prescription/over the counter drugs, especially if they have stimulants in them. (some are less tolerant than others!) Still, it would be a good idea to get checked out. Good luck.
