Robin Williams had been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, his wife, Susan Schneider, said in a statement provided to BuzzFeed two days after Williams died as a result of asphyxia. Parkinson's is "a progressive disorder of the nervous system that affects … movement," according to a definition by the Mayo Clinic. The disorder is best known for causing a tremor, but it can also generally reduce the ability to move, slur speech, and restrict facial movement.
