Worsen with movement
Usually occur in the hands first, affecting one hand or both hands
Can include a “yes-yes” or “no-no” motion of the head
May be aggravated by emotional stress, fatigue, caffeine or temperature extremesiming of tremors. Essential tremor of the hands usually occurs when you use your hands. Tremors from Parkinson’s disease are most prominent when your hands are at your sides or resting in your lap.

However, people with essential tremor sometimes develop other neurological signs and symptoms, such as an unsteady walk.
Parts of the body affected. Essential tremor mainly involves your hands, head and voice. Parkinson’s disease tremors usually start in your hands, and can affect your legs, chin and other parts of your body.Altered gene. The inherited variety of essential tremor (familial tremor) is an autosomal dominant disorder. An altered gene from just one parent is needed to pass on the condition.
