Thank you for your question and welcome to Health Central's Anxiety Community.

 

A research study done at Northwestern University in 2010 did show a correlation between stress and the onset of Parkinson's disease. You can read about the study at: http://www.northwestern.edu/newscenter/stories/2010/11/parkinsons-disease-stress.html
