Tremors

has anybody experienced tremors early on? I’m currently in limbo land and have a tremor in my hands when I’m holding something / picking something up or if I hold my hands up in any way really. I also have it in my legs, sometimes it’ll just start shaking for a couple minutes and go but it’s always there if I lift my leg upwards or lean my weight onto my leg. I know tremors are something that usually come along later so I’m curious to know if anybody else had them very early on or as a first symptom? And did they stay or go eventually?

@georgiaolivia I have tremors in my right leg and right hand fairly often... Best person to talk to would be your nuero or MS nurse. There are a few meds they could prescribe.... like Baclofen for cramps and pregabilin for the nerve burning sensation and twitches. But every one is different so best to talk to your MS Nurse or neurologist..

I got them early on and my doctor prescribed propranolol which worked really well. They did go away after a few months so now I only take the medication as needed.

@highlander I don’t currently have an MS nurse as I’m still in limboland so just something I’m going to have to deal with at the minute unfortunately. It’s nice to know I'm not alone in experiencing them though thank you for your reply!

@mlgilber1 have they only ever been present during a relapse or was it something you got during remission periods too?

@georgiaolivia You're GP might be able to help you out with something... Have you had an MRI yet? Try stretching exercises like you would for a gym warm up. That helps me out. It's worth ago.

@georgiaolivia It’ll happen to me during remission periods too
