Tremors are variable: In patients with Parkinson's Disease(PD), the degree of tremors is quite variable different patients. The tremors can also vary depending on the effect of treatment as the medication works well for a few hours and then the effect wears off. Besides resting tremors, patients with PD have muscle rigidity which slows down their movements (Bradykinesia).No other condition causes resting tremors.

See a neurologist: There are a variety of causes of tremor at rest but the best way for an evaluation is to see an expert which would be a neurologist.
