Possibly: Though there are many other things that a shuffling gait could indicate. If you recently started any new medicine or have other symptoms that are troubling you see your doctor. Parkinson's is characterized by a particular type of tremor, combined with other symptoms such as slowness of movements, gait changes decreased expressiveness of one's face, small handwriting, and certain sleep disturbance.
