It has become very obvious that my dad (64 years old) is having real trouble keeping his hands steady now. We were erecting a wardrobe yesterday and he kept dropping items and was unable to use the hammer as he used to. He also sometimes stutters/slurs his words at times (when sober) and his driving is much more eratic, and he will clip curbs when taking corners. But it is his hands i am most concerned about... Any advice will be gratefully received! Thanks in advance
Does he drink a large amt? Alcohol can cause tremors too. The one thing to determine if its parkinson's is check him while he's sleeping, does it stop? What kind of gait does he have, that is what usually tips people off to parkinson's. Does he shuffle along and then freeze where his body seems to keep going while his feet are glued to the ground. There are also tremors called essential tremors, don't ask me why the essential, it can be caused by medication or age. Has he had his vision tested? There are many conditions that resemble parkinson's too. Is he on any medication? If it continues I would advise a neurologist visit for him.
