Follow Us on Instagram and Other Social Sites
One of the most popular social media sites, Instagram has more than one billion users worldwide. With this many users, we have the potential of reaching out to more people with essential tremor. And for those who don’t have ET, we can work to educate them about what essential tremor is.
- A PD tremor is mostly seen at rest and is referred to as a “resting tremor” while ET is known as an “active tremor” because it’s most noticeable when someone tries to use their hands.
- There is rarely a family history associated with PD, but for ET more than 50 percent of people have someone else in their family who has been diagnosed.
- PD generally involves slow movements, stiffness and problems with walking or balance. In ET the primary symptom is tremor.
