Did you know March is National Essential Tremor month? Essential tremor (ET) is often mistaken for Parkinson’s disease, yet it is eight times more common. ET is a neurological condition typically marked by tremors in the hands, head, and/or voice. Approximately 10 million Americans have ET, with symptoms beginning at any age.
