Tremors

Tremors

I keep having the tremors like I am outside in the winter without a on jn the Northeast. I do this all day and night even when I take my medicine. Can you please tell me what is going on. I can't take the sinemet because of stomach issues. I was sick on that medication for 7 months. Now I am on Amantadine and it feels like it's not working. Do anyone else go through this? I'm getting a new neurologist because this put on things and don't wean or raise med and don't slowly do that.

Thanks!

Yesterday he called the little boy next door the "n" word after the 5 year old child was teasing our dogs. I have known him for more than 35 years and he has never said that word. I asked him why he used that word and he said "that's what he is". He's never been violent or racist and… read more

With dementia, all the usual social filters are turned off. He can't help it, but it doesn't make it easier for those who have to live with the consequences. I agree that you need to let people know… read more
