I wouldn't even venture a guess to what it could be.  I think only a doctor would be able to help with that.

You've been referring to this tremor situation for a couple of months now, repeatedly.  Why in the world would you not seek the views of a doctor after that amount of time?

I couldn't tell you either Scooter. You need to really sit down with your doctor, and open up, and explain everything that's going on. Perhaps some more tests are required. I've never had to deal with that problem.

Hope you get some answers-----Ray

Yes it has been a couple of months . At first it was very mild not so much any more . I made the mistake to bring mark to the last doctors appointment and I guess you can say I had a brain fart .I thought that by bring mark to the appointment would help him understand fat chance .He was sitting there when the doctor talked to the both of us . He claims to have a bad memory he remembers only what he want to . This weekend we got into three fights having to do with the this computer . He is like a child with a toy he asked a question I tried to help and here we go again. Like I said I go to the doctor office this Wednesday at 11:00 am and my group meeting is at 1:15 pm . lets see if I can make both.

P.S. I am sure when I talk to ID Doctor she will say I not sure we will send you to a different Doctor which will take I guess about two months.

Trying to find anwers to complex medical problems usually takes time, Dwayn20.  This could have probably been a little ways taken care of if you would have pushed the issue when you saw your doctor last time.  I do not put responsibility on another human being to "remember" what the doctor said, or to take charge of my health problems.  If you can't do that for yourself, maybe you need a guardian.

Remember when you go to not only bring a pad with all the questions you want to ask but also to WRITE DOWN what the DR says.

If the DR says she doesn't know what is wrong and wants to send you to someone else don't get upset she doesn't know the answer but be glad she is concerned enough to follow through.  I know you want answers right away but sometimes we just have to be patient.  I know with my esophageal stricture I wanted to know WHY I had one ... and the DRs answer was that it was an idiopathic stricture.  Idiopathic is a fancy way of saying they don't know.  Unfortunately, there is still a lot about our bodies that doctors don't know and that tends to increase in LTS.

Good luck,
AA

Update talked with my Nurse this morning.She had already did the test and ruled out Graves Disease.So now she said I have to wait to see a neurologist which may take a little while.She said try to be patience because it,s a teaching hospital.So who knows how long it will take I am fine with it as long as the hand tremors are not worst.
