Essential tremor is a neurological condition in its own right I have never heard about ET turning into PD I know for a fact people are often wrongly diagnosed with ET when in fact it is actually. I suspect this is what has happened here ET does not respond to parky meds so if that is what had taken place anyone diagnosed with ET given parky meds which calmed tremor down. It stands to reason it has always been Parkinson's disease.
