Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

FGFR3 is the coding for a protein in chromosome 4. We have 23 pairs of chromosomes.

With regard to Parkinsons Disease, a mutation of this may be a cause of the disease. You can read more here on this research but it's very technical (cut and paste) : https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5442366/

A neurologist can help your further.
