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.

I lost smell years back, then foot tremor, then Veterans Hospital said it was ET, medications didn’t work, then neurologist said ET he could fix with meds, no luck, then movement disorder specialist said PD, put on Mirapex, decent control, second opinion at another MDS agreed with PD, then finally my MRI last week showed no tumors or other damage, so......PD, I guess it’s settled!

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.
