I don't think it is normal, are you on any medications that you may be having a side effect from?

My daughter had uncontrollable tremors and we had her seen by a neurologist. He said that sometimes a person gets a virus and the nerves in the cervical area become imflamed. When the virus goes away, the nerves can remain damaged and will cause tremors. Don't know if this helps or not. I'd see a neurologist if the tremors continue.

I'll keep you in my prayers,

Re: is this normal?

It could possibly be be that you have some sort of problem in or around the vertebrae that is affecting the sympathetic chain and activating your fight or flight response.The chain actually runs down alongside (the outside)of the vertebrae.I have major damage to my SNS caused by a spinal cord surgery and believe me, the SNS affects a whole lot of different things like the fight or flight response,heart rate,muscle control and a host of other areas.What exactly IS your condition?Herniations?or some other problem?Marcia

Re: is this normal?

Lynns, what kind of dr. are you seeing? Is it possible for you to go somewhere like Mayo clinic? There is no need for anyone to suffer like this. Do you have pain meds? Are they not strong enough to help? Do you have a PM doctor, and has anyone ever suggested the intrathecal morphine pump?
If these tremors continue, I would consider seeing a neurologist if you haven't already. I really feel bad for you as it is clear you are battling on many fronts. I wish you much luck in finding help.

2 lami's, 3 fusions
bone spur removal
cerv. fusion, 1 level
morphine pump
