Parkinson's Pill-Rolling Tremor

A couple of times now, as I lie in bed (but before I fall to sleep), my thumb and index finger will rub together very quickly two or three times. It only happens once or twice. It has not happened at other times of the day or night.  My question is whether this sounds like a Parkinson's pill rolling tremor, and whether Parkinson's is likely or whether it could be benign.

Hi,

How are you?
Pin rolling tremor is characteristically seen in parkinsons disease and is usually one of the earliest symptom of this disease.
It is very difficult to tell without examination if this is the characteristic pin rolling tremor of parkinsons or not.
Please get yourself evaluated by your doctor as soon as possible.
Take care!

I have the same thing as Staley. Showed neuro - didn't know what to make of it - since other symptoms of PD are absent. Did you ever get it diagnosed?

Thanks
