I was initially diagnosed with essential tremors many years ago. After my husband died the tremors became more visible. I noticed that the more agitated I became the more pronounced the tremors became. About 6 months late I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s.
I was also diagnosed with essential tremors by my first neurologist. He left the practice and the doctor that took over right away told me that I had Parkinson's by just the way I was moving and other things that she could see.
What I have is both. I have Essential Tremors and PD. I take different medicines for each diagnosis. So what I am saying is you can have Essential Tremors and PD at the same time. Does that help?
Yes I was at first and then I saw another neurologist and she said that I had Parkinson's.
