Tremors Suck
Posted by tim in I Feel Sick on December 10, 2009

Earlier this year when I went to the doctor for my blood pressure, she noticed that I was shaking a fair amount. At the time, we both attributed it to the blood pressure being high, and we moved on.

Later in the year, when I went in for my initial consult about my back, the other doctor I saw noticed I was shaking. I didn't notice it, but she thought it was from the pain I was in with my back, so we didn't really labor over it any.

Well, my back has been pretty much better (though not 100%) for a couple of months, I've experimented with removing caffeine from my diet, and there has really been no improvement for the tremors.

I have mentioned it to my doctor again since then, and she hasn't really put any focus on it other than an "oh". I'm really starting to get tired of it though, because it's starting to affect my day to day living. For example, I haven't been able to type very well today because I keep hitting extra keys, hitting intended keys multiple times, or missing the keys all together.

Also, I've noticed that my legs are really weak and I have a bit of a "bobbing" in my head when I'm at rest. It's really starting to frustrate me to the point that I'm taking it out on others, which I really hate to do and by no means intend.

I have an appointment for blood work and a follow up next week, so I'm going to talk with the doctor about it then. I really don't want to find out that it's something serious like Parkinson's, Peripheral Neuropathy, or Multiple Sclerosis, but I need to find out what it is and get it taken care of.

In other news, I'm looking to trade my body for one in better shape. If you have any leads, please let me know.
