I am a 43yr old w/m Pharmacist. I have noticed in the past 6 months or so that when I put my contacts in every morning, my right hand trembles to the poing I can barely get my left contact in. It does not seem to shake when I put the right contact in. In the more recent past I have notice my hands tremble during different tasks for example, using a calculator or while typing on computer. If I am thinking what to type next, my hands will ***k or shake. It's kind of like I'm really nervous or when someone has restless leg syndrome(I can not keep them still). The only thing I can think about is Michael J. Fox and young he was when he was diagnosed with a form of Parkinson. What test can I have done to give my a diagnosis and/or rule out Parkinson's. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

John Gray, PD
