Hi there,Most likely Parkinson's --this is a typical symptoms during early stages.Of course other symptoms like cogwheel rigidity, gait need to be evaluated to arrive at a diagnosis.Another possibility can be essential tremor --a benign condition affecting some individuals without any further consequences.Peripheral neuropathy does not affect the mouth commonly.Please see a neurologist for further evaluation.
