Parkinson’s Resting Tremor

Tremor is  a shaking or oscillating movement, that usually appears when a person’s muscles are relaxed, or at rest, hence the term “resting tremor.” The affected body part trembles when it is not performing an action and often the tremor stops when a person begins an action. The stress or excitement can exacerbated the tremor.
In the beginning stages of the disease, about 70 percent of people experience a slight tremor in one finger, the hand, or foot on one side of the body. Tremor of the jaw or face is much less common. Even though a tremor is the most visible outward sign of the disease, not all people with Parkinson’s will develop tremors.
