Question about "essential tremor"
« on: December 07, 2013, 11:13:36 AM »
As mentioned previously, I've been experiencing resting twitches/tremors in my left thumb and index finger. 

Monday of this past week my Neurologist told me that he didn't see any evidence of Parkinson's (and my MRI was clean).

He told me I have "essential tremor." Well, the tremor/twitching went away by thursday, but just last night it started up again.

I guess my question is, can you have essential tremor and still experience tremor/twitching at rest?
