hand tremors and topamax

I have been on topamax or topiramate 200 mg for over 2yrs now and never had a problem with getting my meds refilled.  This med does take away alot of my hand tremors.  Some so bad I cant raise a fork to my mouth. Food falls off. My 2 Doctors I had before primary drs refilled it for me no problem.  They have since moved on to become hospitalist.  So now I got dr no.3 in 3yrs. Who wont refill the script for me.  Says he doesnt feel comfortable doing so. I am going through alot right now starting with the hand tremors that are awful, headaches and just general ick. I cant see my neuro guy until Dec 16th.  People who see me now say I look like  I am shaking every where.  What can I do?  The pharmacy guy said I shouldnt go off this med cold turkey.  Well I dont know what else to do. If I call and tell my primary who wont refill for me, I am shaking so bad, what can he do?  This is pure hell for me.  Can someone give me some advice please?
