Customer Question

Dr. Love
Good morning.
On three occasions Aug 31; Sept 17 and this morning I notice that when I extend my hand out it shakes. For example this morning placing a cup in the microwave the left hand was shaking. It happens when arm is extended. Is this a cause for concern.?
Also I slept through night with gabapentin.

It is not a separate reason for concern. It is consistent with the diagnoses that you have, and it is appropriate to be concerned about your diagnoses and getting treated for those diagnoses, but it is not a reason for any additional concern.

It is good that you slept through the night.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
which diagnosis are you referring to? Stress? Cevrical and lumbar issues? I am not following you.
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 months ago.

It can occur with either.

Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 months ago.

It can be related to the radiculopathy affecting a muscle strength in the arm. Or it could be related to stress.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Also sometimes I feel the tremor in my chest or my head. Today when I was heating my neck I noticed a slight tremor in my body. Could that be stress, radiculopathy or the gabapentin
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 months ago.

If the tremor is affecting areas beyond the nerves affected by the radiculpathy, then it would most likely be stress/anxiety.

Dr Love
Can radiculopathy pain be constant. In other words pretty continuous. Also on the internet it says most radiculopathies resolve in six months
Is that true
Under what circumstances
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
If true is it resolve with therapy only
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 months ago.

These are separate questions, rather than clarification of the earlier question about tremors.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
