I am being treated with neo-mercazole and atenolol for Graves disease - started 1 week ago. The initially reduced my tremor and pulse but now only my pulse. I spend most of my days feeling jittery and can get upset easily - any little confrontation makes me feel on the edge (I work in a gaol so that happens sadly too often).
Should not the atenolol help with that tremor feeling throughout the body.
I also hurt my back doing routine things - on this day I was particulatrly jittery - I believe it contributed to my muscle spasms - has anyone else had these problems? My Gp thought I was nuts - but a friend of mine who has Graves thought it was entirely possible.
