    The biggest problem with Essential Tremor is understanding what Essential means. It means from within. Doctors have to rule out Thyroid disease and any secondary cause. They are rare. Secondly, frequently the treatment is worse than the condition .Beta blockers and primidone have been the mainstay for the last 40 yrs. Some severe tremors are treated with brain surgery. Alcohol usually helps essential tremor ,however a trial of an alcohol like medication --OCTALOL was not successful. It is a Doctor's Dilema

    • I found that he didn't have a very good bedside manner. He didn't ask how I was or if I had any queries.
