Tremors worse
 
So I am anxiously awaiting my results of the MRI from this past Monday. Curious more than anything else what it says.

Does anyone else deal with tremors? I've felt tremors in other parts of my body other than my hands and toes. My arms will jerk up or my legs will or they will twitch. Totally weird feeling.

I have found that I hold my breath.

Will be happy when I know what is going on.

Are you on Cymbalta? I have a friend who got some serious tremors from taking it. It's one of the more serious side effect from it.

Tremors and myoclonus (sudden jerks of the muscles) are not part of fibromyalgia. Something else is going on. I would suggest you see a neurologist. A good one is John Meyer at the Centennial Medical Center, or Steven Gulevich, his partner.

Lol thought I posted this on the MS board. I see a MS specialist up in Northern Co where I live. It is highly suspected that I have MS

Please let us know what your results show on MRI. I am from CO too, and often wonder why we have a high incidence of MS in our state. I do hope it gets ruled OUT in your case and your symptoms are from something less serious. At least if your MRI confirms it, there are so many good treatments available now that many people stay in remisiion.

I sure will let you know. I'm giving them til middle of next week to call me. I may just call and leave a message today. My neurologist is a MS specialist and he has MS as well. He's been published in a few medical magazines and been on the news. Have you heard of Dr. Shaffer?
