See below: Most often there is a unilateral resting tremor in hand, but occasionally there may be vague stiffness or gait imbalance. On occasion, one might see chronic constipation, or impaired swallowing which seems nonspecific, and unilateral foot dystonia, or cramping may occur very early. If there is a question or if runs in your family, see a neurologist.
