Head Shaking!?

Hey everyone! I’ve just recently started experiencing twitching, jerking, tremors, and a lot more shakiness. The newest area of my body to shake is my head and it makes me really uncomfortable. Does anyone else experience this? And if so, have you found anything that helps? Thanks!

Hi @mlgilbert

I take primidone that helps. I started on a low dose and gradually increased
. It really does help.

Take care

My head started jerking, leg and face my head always jerks back when it happens i feel so stupid cause ive no control over it but it stopped for a little bit but its coming back, did you try any medication for it? Has it worked? How are the side affects?

@chanelle_1 My neurologist gave me propranolol and it took care of it immediately. The head tremors and body jerks went away and only happen occasionally and I like the propranolol because I can take it as needed. It’s a blood pressure med that’s commonly used for tremors. It can be a little sedating at first, but it goes away. No other side effects.
