Resting Tremors of Right Hand in Parkinson’s Disease

Resting tremors are a hallmark of Parkinson’s disease (PD). Tremors start on one side of the body affecting upper limb more severely than the lower limb. After 3 years or in some cases even longer, tremors become symmetric involving the other side. In this case, the patient continued to have only right-sided tremors even 7 years after the initial symptoms started. He had other symptoms of PD such as bradykinesia and rigidity, again affecting right side more than the left.

I am a doctor with 25 years experience. I have worked as a neurologist for about 20 years. Educating public and healthcare professionals is very dear to me. This is possible due to my interactions with thousands of patients and their caregivers. I salute the patients who suffer and it is our duty to minimise suffering by preventing diseases and ensuring prompt diagnosis and treatment of those already affected.
