Parkinsons varient discovery

Hi Ive had early onset parkins for 5 years but tremors only. My neurologest is Barry Snow who is right up there with the best in the world but even he hasn't said that it definitely is PD. Apparently the version I have has only recently been accepted as a new variety and over the past 100 odd years has been simply called PD. Now my version which is referred to as tremors predominent PD and apparently the tremors may be the only symptom I will suffer from. I don't really feel lucky because of this however I am glad that I may not develope some of the more debillitating symptoms. So the upside is they have discovered this different version of PD but the downside is they dont know how to treat the tremors. Anybody else heard about this??
