Hi Mr Gaurav Sharma,

Thank you for posting your query.

I would like to reassure you that it is unlikely that your current symptoms are due to Parkinson's disease (PD).

In PD, in addition to shaking of hands, there would be slowness of movements, stiffness of limbs and postural imbalance. Also, the symptoms would worsen over time.

It is very uncommon to see PD in people less than 40 years of age.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,

Dr Sudhir Kumar MD (Internal Medicine), DM (Neurology)
