While this confounded disease is always present a positive outlook is vital (and exercise). It got me thinking that everything seems to have a name for their collective except, as far as I can make out, Parkinson's.

The above is a column of chimneys (nothing to do with Parkinson's).

More examples:

A pod of whales

A litter of puppies

A horde of hamsters

A comb of bananas

A bevy of ladies

A shoal of fish

and of course A murder of crows.

So what should the collective noun for Parkinson's be?

A shake

A tremor

A brain

A dopamine

An iceberg

A confusion

A constipation

I think we ought to pick one, just for fun. Unless there already is one and just haven't found it.

Suggestions please.
