The tremor of Parkinson's disease is present at rest. The hand tremor is most marked with the arms supported on the lap and during walking. The characteristic movement is 'pill-rolling' where movement of the fingers at the metacarpophalangeal joints is combined with movements of the thumb. The resting tremor decreases on finger-nose testing but a faster action tremor may supervene. The best way to evoke the tremor is to distract the patient, such as focusing attention on the left hand with a view to 'examining' the right hand or by turning the head.
