How long does it take for a reply?
Thanks for the additional details. Theoretically there could be many possibilities for this problem, but having gone through your descriptions, at your age of 65, we definitely need a thorough check for this problem. Essentially the following possibilities should be ruled out:
(a) Aortic insufficiency
(b) Essential tremor
(c) Paraneoplastic cerebellar degeneration
We definitely need to check in with our doctor so that these issues can be looked into and that we do not miss out any other cause for this problem, and that appropriate management can be instituted.
I hope that this information helps. Best wishes. Please feel free to enquire if you have any remaining concerns/ doubts, as it shall be a privilege and a pleasure to try and help as much as I can.
