Hi everyone,
 
   I have been having alot of tremors and balance problems. The tremors make my legs and arms very weak. I have started falling again some like last year. Could this be a type of seizure in stead of just tremors? I'm afraid to drive, because of the weird feeling I get in my head and my balance problems.
   The tremors are mostly in my legs, but I do get them in my arms and hands at times. When I get them in my legs, my lower back hurts alot and my legs. When I get them in my arms or hands, the back of my neck hurts alot, with my arms and hands.
    I felt like I needed to come back to the experts one more time. Tks in advance. You all have been very nice to me. Take care.

Hi Mom46,
Are you on any meds for your seizures?  Very often these tremors you speak of and balance probs. can be a side effect from your meds. or maybe your seizure meds are having a  negative reaction to yor other meds.
 
You should definately take up this issue with your Doc. Everybody reacts differently to meds. 
 
Also, this could be a type of seizure, talk to your Doc. and see if he/she can arrange for you to have some testing done IE: MRI, EEG, VEEG, CAT scan etc. That way you and your Doc. will have a better idea as to what is going on.
 
Good Luck

Tks Randy and Mandi,
 
  These started before any new meds were added. After they started my rheumy thinks I have dysautonomia and started treating me for that, with lyrica, increased my dose of klonopin that I take for RLS and added propranonal. These meds haven't helped at all. I have an appt to have a evp test on the 11th and to see a new neuro on the 27th. Hopefully I will get some answers then. Tks for your help. I will let you know what I find out. You are all so helpful and kind.
