Intention tremors or essential tremors are an ailment by themselves. They are not caused by a more serious illness. A Neurosurgeon will be of no help. There is no surgical treatment for this problem. There is a medication you should try. It is called Propranolol (used to treat high blood pressure) and when used in small doses, 10 mg every 6-8 hours when needed has been very effective to help control the tremor. Discuss this with your LMD. You will need a prescription. It is worth a try. The side effects (relaxation and slight decrease in heart rate) are minimal at this dose.
