Customer reply replied 8 years ago
my fingers and involved in the shaking, and the shaking seems to happen no matter what I do, stress or no stress. And no tremors in family history that I know of.
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
these tremors, is there something I do to help it besides medicine, or will my local clinic doctar have to perscribe me something for it, and note, in my town there is only clinic doctars, no fancy hospitals or anything
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Is there a possibility that its not just a diagnosis of tremors? and possibly a side affect of a vitamin defficiency or something like that?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
