Hand tremors are one of the important sign of alcohol withdrawal. You should also look for other signs of withdrawal like, excessive sweating, increased heart rate, difficulty in getting sleep, restlessness, anxiety, nausea, poor appetite etc. If others signs are also present then you must consider stopping your drinking habit. Help of psychitrist may be required in quitting alcohol. If only hand tremors are there, consult a neurologist.

My son is heaving seizures but has normal eeg and MRI. His age is 1 year and was born in eighth month. Will these end with time.

Master In Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapist,
It will depend on the frequency of seizure attacks. You have to carefully notice tht how many times in a day or week or month the episodes are recurring? meanwhile you can check with seizure medicines n consider revising dosage with your family doctor.

It is due to comression of nerve at elbow or shoulder region. Ask your wife to reduce weight and position while sleeping also needs to improve.

Its a progressive degenerative disease. If it is the correct diagnoses for your father then he can maintain the remaining strength and slow down the regression by doing maintainence therapy under any good occupational therapist. If required they will provide splints to support the functional independence.

. 1. It could be due to essential tremor. The cause of the tremor is unknown. In some cases it is hereditary and runs in families. There is no definite treatment unless it is severe 2 other causes of tremor could be stress, anxiety, panic, nervousness, inadequate sleep, physical exhaustion, strong emotion, hyperthyroidism, hypoglycemia, smoking/tobacco/alcohol abuse/withdrawl, excess tea/coffee, drugs like steroid/amphetamine, neurological disorder, 3. Investigate yourself to exclude the above causes of tremor after consulting neurologist 4. Avoid stress/anxiety/nervousness/ panic etc 5. Avoid excess tea/coffee/ smoking/alcohol if you have 6. Take good nourishing diet 7. Have adequate sleep. 8. Do a thyroid function test to exclude thyroid problem 9. Consult neurologist for further advice.

Hi, This is about my mother she is 50 in age and had been diagnosed with thyroid around 2 year back after that she started taking medicine "Thyroxine Sodium Tablet-50 mg" and after few month it was in control but that 1 year back while she was still on thyroid medicine she had started having tremors in her right hand. After doing some online research we find that it could be Parkinson and we had went to different doctors from renowned neurologist in Ranchi, Vellore, Patna but they have prescribed the same medicine syndopa and other tablets related to parkinson and for last few months she is under shoulder and neck pain 24 hours and as the pain is unbearable she is forced to take pain killers. I did some googling and found that tremors could be a side effect of thyroid but not sure I am worried that my mothers problems are not been diagnosed properly Please reply if someone have good understanding about these problems and genuinely want to help. So after going to many doctors we have seen that all doctor just repeat mostly the same tests and same medicines and I am very hurt to say this but all they want is money they don't care about patient as we are from middle class family money matters for us but money is nothing in front of my mother's well being and we are ready for treatment cost until they diagnosed her properly and do proper treatment. Please reply as soon as possible.

My answer to your query is: 1.My mother she is 50 in age and had been diagnosed with thyroid around 2 year back after that she started taking medicine "Thyroxine Sodium Tablet-50 mg" and after few month it was in control but that 1 year back while she was still on thyroid medicine she had started having tremors in her right hand See there are 2 main types of thyroid related problem one is Hypothyroidism where body does not produces thyroid Hormone sufficiently and another is hyperthyroidism where body produces excess of thyroid hormone in the body. You had not mentioned which thyroid problem your mother is facing among these.In thyroid problem level of serum T3, T4 and TSH always monitored and in conventional allopathic treatment accordingly doses are adjusted. Hence monitoring is very important in all thyroid problem. Shaking of hand and tremors may be because of continuous use of above mentioned medicine also. 2. After doing some online research we find that it could be Parkinson and we had went to different doctors from renowned neurologist in Ranchi, Vellore, Patna but they have prescribed the same medicine syndopa and other tablets related to parkinson and for last few months she is under shoulder and neck pain 24 hours and as the pain is unbearable she is forced to take pain killers. I did some googling and found that tremors could be a side effect of thyroid but not sure I am worried that my mothers problems are not been diagnosed properly Please reply if someone have good understanding about these problems and genuinely want to help. This is the drawback of not getting complete information from site such as google. Of course early sign of parkison disease in most of the cases is tremor (that is also a characteristic pill rolling tremor of parkisons disease) but it is also associated with other signs and symptoms such as rigidity in muscles, slow movement of body, balancing problem, speech changes and also most important mask like face. So first confirm it. 3.Start Homeopathic treatment along with conventional medicines for long term effect without any known side effects as we after monitoring condition will stop the dosage in a time span.

I am 34 years male and I have tingling, burning sensation in my body along with weakness and numbness especially in hands and legs. This is there since December 4, 2016. How much should I be worried? I had done few tests per the physician including blood sugar, TSH, Uric acid, Vitamins-D and B12. My fasting BS is 97 mg/dl, HbA1c is 5.90, Total T3 is 0.96, Total T4 is 10.20, Calcium is 8.80, Cholesterol is 161 mg. DL, Urea is 21.4, Uric acid is 5.80, TSH is 5.56, and Vitamin-D level (D-25 Hydroxy) is 15.34. Kindly let me know what kind of dietary habits I need to follow and what basically should be a healthy lifestyle here in this case. Now, I am having Jneuron (Methylcobalamin Pregabalin), faster (herbal extracts with vitamins, minerals etc.) tablets along with D-rise (this one is once a week). The weakness, numbness seem to be little reduced, but it still persists to some extent along with transient tinglings. I have to also mention that I somehow did not follow a proper lifestyle for last few months like waking up late in afternoon, empty stomach for a long time, delayed meals, food irregularities, less veggies, too much tea etc. Kindly suggest, if I need to be concerned and any further tests if required to rule out some larger possibilities. Thank you.

My father is suffering from parkinson disease what to do he is suffering from 4-5 years but still not cured.
Hello, parkinsons is a progressive disease of the nervous system marked by tremor, muscular rigidity, and slow, imprecise movement, chiefly affecting middle-aged and elderly people. It is associated with degeneration of the basal ganglia of the brain and a deficiency of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Consult a good homoeopath for the proper treatment. He will take a complete case history of your father and then accordingly give him a perfect suitable medication. Thanks.
