Mild tingling in elbow and wrist area, tremor in ring finger. Parkinson's disease?

Are ALL resting tremors Parkinson s? First noticed ring finger tremor about 1 month ago. It lasted for about 36 hours and then went completely away....for about 21 days and then returned. I altered my posture the first time it happened and it went away. I had reverted back to bad posture by the second time the tremor started. Both times, it initiated while at work. I type alot and have had posture that puts pressure on a bent elbow and wrist while typing at home and work. I have a slight tingling sensation in the elbow and general wrist area. Is this a compressed nerve or PD?

All rest remors are not due to parkinsonism.Your problem might probably be due to pressure on your median nerve due to your work posture during can get over this problem by typing for about five mins and then putting your hands down for around half a minute before continuing again.If your problem still persists you can consult a neurologist
