In brief: Parkinsons tremors

There are many causes of trembling, including simple anxiety.
Parkinson's disease has a very characteristic tremor that occurs at rest, but goes away when you start moving. The tremor is called "pill rolling" because it usually involves rhythmic movements of the thumb and index finger (and wrist). Other symptoms include stiffness or rigidity, and difficulty to start moving or stop once underway.
