Parkinson symptoms

I''ve noticed over the last year that my mother-in-law''s big toe on her right foot has a tremor when she''s relaxed. Last week her husband had a health issue that she thought was a stroke. I saw her just after they''d been to the doctor and her whole foot shook even when I held it. She often complains that her right foot gets cramps.

I suggested to her that she has it checked out but she''s sure it''s nothing. Am I worrying unnecessarily?

Hallo Karen
It could be the beginning of a neurological problem like Parkinsons disease so it may be better to let a neurologist examine her. The danger is that she may not be able to control it, and that it may lead to falls and injuries.

One other thing, she says she''s aware of the tremor but that it happens intermittently. But I''ve noticed that it happens at her monthly pedicure.
