I saw at the bottom of your post that you had essential tremors. Can you explain what you went through with that? Thanks so much!
2003 symptoms started with very intense panic attacks and anxiety. Also had sound and smell sensitivities. Was in and out of the hospital from 2003-2005. Diagnosed with panic disorder.
2007 found an LLMD and was diagnosed with Lyme. Didn't start treatment.
2008 symptoms came back with a vengence. Muscle pain, joint pain, floaters, stiff neck, rib pain, slow thinking, brain fog, etc...
2009 went back to see LLMD. Diagnosed again with Lyme plus co-infections....Babesia and Bartonella.
Illnesses:-Chronic Lyme Disease,Hashimotos Thyroiditis, Ulcers, Hypoglycemia
Medications:-Biaxin 250mg to start (starting slow and working my way up, Mepron(babesia), Ultram(muscle/joint pain), Thyro Complex 60mg(Thyroid), Probiotics ,Caproyl(intestinal candidas),Psyllium Powder(intestinal cleansing support),Bentonite Magma(absorbent aid for intestinal detoxification)
-Plus a ton of other supplements

Hi CajunGirl,

I was just about to sign off for the night when I saw your post. I can explain more tomorrow when I'm on the computer again if you like, but for now:
I was diagnosed with Essential Tremor by a neurologist in 2003 based on my significant right hand tremor. It affected my handwriting, applying makeup, doing paperwork, or doing anything requiring fine motor skills. It's apparently a ''slowly progressive neurological movement disorder.'' It's the most common movement disorder, and it can spread to the head, neck, arms, legs.

The interesting thing is that the tremor is hardly ever present anymore, and my handwriting is nice again. I think this is because of the long-term antibiotics (started Jan/08). I think it was misdiagnosed.

If there's anything more you'd like to know, about this or anything else, please ask away! Take good care.
*Abx combo tx since Jan/08*
Lyme disease - clinical dx ’08; Babesiosis (Positive IgM/IgG) '08;
GERD '04; Essential Tremor ’03; Fibromyalgia ’01; Osteoarthritis; Depression; IBS; Interstitial Cystitis

Thanks for explaining. I had a whole body tremor and wondered if it was the same. Those came with a feeling of passing out. I don't have them much anymore and I don't miss them one bit!
