Parkinsons or essential tremor??

I have recently developed a tremor in my right arm & hand. it seems worse when I am tired; better when I am doing something with that hand. I've had it for about 2 months. Today my doc said it may be early Parkinsons or essential tremor. How do they tell the difference? Is there a diagnostic test that can differentiate betwee the two/ Is treatment different? Thanks
