Has Anyone Been Diagnosed With An Essential Tremor Then Later Diagnosed With PD?

Has Anyone Been Diagnosed With An Essential Tremor Then Later Diagnosed With PD?

A MyParkinsonsTeam Member said:

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.

2014 diagnosed with "essential tremors", 2018 PD. meds are helping some now. But it took a couple of months to take hold. Still the occasional dizziness and tremors.
