My left thumb sometimes twitches involuntarily for a day or two. I'm 39. My father has parkinsons. Should i be worried about it?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Doubt It

I would think this is something completely unrelated.
Plus, if you indeed had parkinson's, the involuntary movements would not go away.

In brief: Likely not from

Parkinson's which is a disease of the older folks.
Yours could be from benign familial tremors, benign muscle twitching, electrolyte imbalance, stress related etc. http://m.wisegeek.org/what-causes-twitching-fingers.htm.
