A Tremor

Rather than multiple tremors, an early sign of Parkinson's may involve a single, noticeable tremor in one area of the body that occurs at rest. More areas of the body may be affected by tremors later on. These differ from the shakes people experience with anxiety or overexertion from exercise or other activities.

The involuntary movement may begin with the fingers, chin and hands. Certain medications and conditions may also cause similar movements. Physicians may review a patient's prescriptions before sending them for further testing.
