Customer Question

I have had trembling in my hands for approximately 10 years. I thought it was anxiety but no matter what antianxiety meds I take the tremors remain. Could a neurologist help with this problem?

Hi there,

Yes, indeed, a neurologist may be able to help you. First there has to be a diagnosis. It may be an essential tremor, a condition nowbody knows why it shows up, but anyhow can be treated. There is the possibility of Parkinson's disease, too, and should be exluded or confirmed. It could be treated very successfully, too.

So please make an appointment soon!
