I'm trying to figure out my tremors. I have spaticity in my legs with tremors at times which are even worse when I am carrying my son. I notice that when I'm driving on the freeway and the lane is not smooth my tremors seems to be worse and my legs get tighter. Does anyone notice this. I have read how some have felt they shake in the MRI machine. Can motions as these increase our tremors? Is there a trick to prevent it from happening?
I hope this doesn't sound like a dumb question. I was diagnosed May 9 and from the time I was told about the suspicion of MS to actual diagnosis was two and a half months. I spent that time learning as much as I could about how they diagnosis it and mimics etc. Of course I knew a lot of the symtoms because I was living with many but now I need to try to figure out how to live best with them and work around them if possible.
If there are any good books or websites anyone can recommend I would appreciate that too.
Tremors are one of the most difficult symptoms to treat. I've heard of people being prescribed beta blockers, but I don't know how effective they are.
Is it a tremor in your leg, or the shakes? My right leg is shaky and wiggles back and forth, especially if I'm trying to balance on something. I don't know where your lesions are, but I have a lesion in the right cerebellum, and my right hand tremors are from that.
Hi. Thats a good question. It feels like a tremor. My left knee shakes when it is bearing most of my weight and it feels different from that. Both hands don't keep still when I hold a paper or when I drink a cup of water for example. I actually feel this throughout my body at times. It makes me feel as though I bounce when I walk. Even my head feels as though it bounces. If I try to do push ups or chest presses my entire arms start shaking or tremoring very quickly which I never had happen before unless I was pushing myself to a new level. What's the difference between a tremor or a shake? It's not all the time but it is happening more often since it started about a month ago.
Anyone with a tremor that is not always there, try to get a video of it to show your neurologist. They can determine what kind of tremor it is or if it is really tremulousness - like from a fatigued muscle.
