Parkinson's Disease

Tremor and humming noise



My sister has a slight tremor in the head. She also makes a humming noise which she is not aware of.I`m really worried that this could be the signs of something serious. She shows no signs of dementia and leads a normal life and is very active in the home and outside. What could be? She is 66 years old and in good health.


The head tremor is most likely essential tremor. Have a neurologist examine her to confirm.
