It’s really important to get this treated as soon as possible because it can quickly grow out of control and become a real hindrance on your life. I’ve had a problem with trembling hands for as long as I can remember but never thought too much of it until it got to the point that I could barely write legibly, especially in a test situation.
One test my neurologist did was have me draw a spiral in comparison to someone who doesn’t have a tremor and compare the two and then have me repeat the exercise a few months later to see if it had gotten any worse. You can try this at home if you’re concerned, but really you should see a neurologist straight away. It could be a simple case of hyperthyroidism which is treated pretty easily with medication.
I take Valium for essential tremor now but I think I’m starting to develop a tolerance to it and it’s not as effective. It’s amazing how something so simple can affect your daily living so much. The amount of times I’ve spilled coffee and dropped things is ridiculous.
