Essential Tremors

My visit to the specialist was truly eye opening as I discovered that the tremors I have are known as Essential Tremor a neurological disorder. While not dangerous it will get worse over time.

It is thought to be a genetic mutation in 50% of cases and being that other family members have similar symptoms this is inherited. Medication has been tried, however the side effects are not good.

Deep brain stimulation maybe an option but it also comes with side effects.

I have a Doctors appointment to discuss the next step.
