Are hand tremors a sign of Parkinson's disease?
Parkinson disease likely
Thank you for trusting HCM
I am sorry for the symptoms you are suffering
I carefully read your symptoms and unfortunately as you explained them it seems like Parkinson disease
To confirm diagnosis, tremor and shaking isn't enough.
To call it Parkinsonism diagnosis is based on clinical evaluation.
Tremor, bradikinesia, and alteration of postural reflex confirm the diagnosis.
Fortunately benign, familiar or activity tremor isn't progressive, in most cases.
In my opinion you should discuss with your neurologist (choose one which is specialised is extrapyramidal disorders) about treatment
You should absolutely schedule an brain magnetic resonance to rule out any organic brain disorder
Clinical evaluation is needed to decide Parkinson stratification
You should discuss with your neurologist about changing treatment as it is known that levodopa isn't effective at your age
Parkinson is treatable at most cases but unfortunately there is no definitive treatment
Hope my answer will help in right diagnoses and treatment
Please feel free to ask for further information or doubts
Wish you all the best and fast recovery
