Re: Essential Tremors
I was diagnosed with essential tremors 1993. They have just started getting worse in the last 2 years. My doctor told me that I needed to cut out some of my caffeine. I know that this works because when I drink anything with caffeine in it I notice that my hands shake worse. I take Mysoline for mine and it seems to help. I have also read on this sight that B12 and vitamine D may help. I haven't ever heard that you live longer, but we might and I very seldom have any kind of pain not even a headache. The embarrassment of the shaking in front of people, which my hands only shake when I am doing something with my left hand, like filling a plate but it doesn't stop me from doing other things. The drinking alcohol I might have to try some and see. My Dad has a slight shaking in his hands but he is 78. I don't remember anyone else in my family having them.
