What are your tremors like?

With PD, the tremors are usually when a person is at rest. With Essential Tremors, they happen when a person is moving, i.e. reaching for something or holding something. The symptoms of FMD sound like some of the symptoms of Parkinson's. It is possible to have more than one cause of movement problems. I've seen people here who had both PD and ET.
