The well-known actor’s death eight years ago is now a distant memory.

On August 11, 2014, the heartbreaking news that Robin Williams had committed suicide stunned the entire world.

The actor gained notoriety in the film industry and received praise for his wit and humour on a global scale. His performances in Mrs Doubtfire and Good Will Hunting have garnered him the most notoriety.

In contrast, he had endured several health problems in the year before his passing due to an undiagnosed illness.

After feeling “gut pain” at a celebration for his and his wife Susan Schneider’s second wedding anniversary, the actor suffered from stomach cramps, indigestion, and digestive problems.

Later, it was discovered that he had trembled in his left hand under his resting arm, which was brought on by a shoulder injury.

As a result, his vision and sense of smell began to decline, making him more anxious and awake at night.

He eventually began to have intermittent motor disturbances that caused him to stop moving.

Schneider compared treating the symptoms to “playing whack-a-mole.”.

“Not all symptoms will manifest simultaneously, in a line of them.

It reminded me of a whack-a-mole game. Was my husband a hypochondriac, I wondered, or is this symptom this month? Despite our best efforts, nothing has worked as we pursue the problem. “.

According to a friend and fellow actor Billy Crystal, Williams’ appearance underwent a significant transformation in just a few months.

He was “taken aback by how he seemed” when they went to see a performance in the fall of 2013 because he was “thinner and looked vulnerable,” according to Crystal.

Williams began to sob as the evening ended, and they said their goodbyes.

Before a reason for his symptoms was found, he did, nonetheless, film portions for the third episode of the Night in the Museum series, in which he played Theodore Roosevelt.

He admitted to his makeup artist Cheri Minns that he had lost his sense of humour due to a panic attack and crying on the set. “.

In the medical journal Neurology, Schneider wrote that he was “losing his mind, and he was aware of it” after being prescribed antipsychotic drugs that only made matters worse. “.

In May 2014, Williams’ Parkinson’s disease was eventually disclosed to the couple by his medical team. However, the comedian refused to accept the diagnosis, and his health deteriorated despite treatment, medication, and tests.

On August 11 of the same year, he committed suicide at 63.

Depression was initially held responsible. A postmortem examination revealed that he had dementia with Lewy bodies.

Confusion, fatigue, hallucinations, and issues with cognition, memory, and judgment can all result from this severe, incurable brain disorder.

Medical experts said it was among the worst cases they had ever encountered.

This is a common misunderstanding of Parkinson’s disease because it shares many of the same symptoms.

Williams was slated to undergo more brain scans the week before he passed. However, Schneider claims that his fear of the test results ultimately drove him to harm himself.

As she said in an interview last year, he might not have wanted to go. He most likely anticipated being jailed and never being set free. “.
