CAN TREMORS GO AWAY

I AM A 57 Y/O MAN THAT HAD A BLOOD VESSEL BURST ON MY RIGHT BRAIN CAUSING LEFT SIDE TREMORS. MY NEUROLOGIST JUST QUIT ONE DAY AND THE HOSPITAL HAS MOVED ME FROM ONE PHYSICIAN, TO ANOTHER, TO ANOTHER. I HAVE ALSO SEEM A MOVEMENT SPECIALIST AND SHE GAVE ME A PILL FOR PARKINSON DISEASE THAT IS DOING NOTHING. DOES ANYBODY KNOW HOW TO CURE, REDUCE, STOP TREMORS? IS THERE RESEARCH BEING DONE OUT THERE SOMEWHERE? SHOULD I SEE ANOTHER KIND OF SPECIALIST? BECAUSE MY LEAD DOCTOR JUST TOOK OFF WITHOUT NOTICE, I AM VERY LOST. CAN ANYONE SUGGEST ANYTHING SO I FEEL I AM DOING SOMETHING TO HELP MYSELF.

    I would take a trip to the Mayo clinic for an expert examination with specialists

    Please hang in there. I don't know where you live, but make sure you see a good neurologist, my son had a stroke, we live in NC and he has some good doctors. God bless you.

    I would think a neurologist would be able to help you. But good for you for helping yourself!! That means you are the kind of person that WILL get better. Very best wishes in finding someone soon!!!

    A good neurologist is essential....You are being moved around too much; no consistency if you can't keep the same doctor.....If I were you and 'distance' is not too forbidding a factor: I think an earlier comment mentioned, "Going to the Mayo Clinic".....I think going to Mayo would be wonderful, if you can swing it.....Truly. Go for the top! You are determined to get help, so why not start at the top? God Bless you, and keep up that fighting spirit.

    I'm sorry to hear about your situation, I agree with some of the other posts I would shop for a neurologist as well as look into physical therapy. I had a stroke in march and am thankful one of the two neurologists turned out to be a good fit for me. finding a good dr can be kind of like dating its ok to try a few out. Regarding tremors I sent a few links not sure if helpful or not but finding some good exercises might help esp during the 1 year recovery for stroke. http://www.livestrong.com/article/449077-how-to-cure-hand-tremors-by-exercising/ http://www.essentialtremor.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/patienthandbook02142013-final1.pdf http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/tremor/press_tremor.htm best of luck!

    What you can best do for yourself is trust your instincts and make your own decisions and realize that you are a survivor among a bunch of wimps that don't really care about you, but most importantly realize that you have family and friends that do care and love you and what you do with the rest of your life.

    Check with your local hospital's physician referral service if there is one to find another primary care doctor who can then refer you to the specialist or specialists that you need. There are all kinds of studies in major teaching hospitals and universities and you should be able to find something somewhere that can help. Medication takes time to reach therapeutic levels, so do some more research to find out if what you have been prescribed has had enough time to start working. I wish you a speedy recovery and the ability to find the physician and physicians you need to assist with your recovery.

    I am sorry for your problems. Try and gt into a medical study and try for another doctor. My husband had tremors in his right hand and was put in a Parkinson program for tremors and hallucinations. His neurologist was sure he had Parkinson. When he passed away I had an autopsy done and he had Alzheimers and Lewy Body Dementia so doctors don't always know. Don't gie up on getting a new doctor. Praying you find the right help. Beverly
