The tremor of
Parkinson's disease is not always severe, but it may
affect many of your daily activities.
To help control tremor in your hand or arm when you are trying to use
the hand, press the affected elbow against your body to stabilize your upper
arm and then perform the movement. Wearing a rigid brace across a joint or
putting a little weight on the hand may help to reduce tremor and restore
control. Caffeine can make tremor worse, so reducing the amount of tea, coffee,
or cola you drink may make tremor less obvious.
