Hi there, very interesting thread.....
2. Atavan (only when needed)
3. Atacand for high blood pressure
4. Advil, etc for neck pain and headaches
5. Vit D
Thats all I do take, but I really do get stiff and very hard muscle tension in my neck and shoulder. I also get heart palpatations from time to time, and I do get tremors - they seem to be inside of me, if that makes any sense. And of course the fatigue. All of these I do not take medication for, and not sure which ones, but I think the posting here has given me some good ideas.
But what about the trembling. It is more prevalent after I wake up, either in the morning, or after I have layed down to have a cat nap ....any sugestions om meds

Hi there, I just responded to another post of yours, and here I am again. Thank you very much for all of this information in this post. Wow, in a very sad way, it is a relief to me in many ways to see that someone else experiences the same things. Sorry about that - but here is the reason why. For months, maybe even two years - I have been told by my doctor that the dizzness, the stiff neck, shoulder pains, the inside trembling, etc etc - was due to stress, overly anxious, etc - that was causing these things to happen. He has told me this so many time, that after awhile I was starting to beleive him. He even suggest that I go for therapy, which reluctantly I did, and was told that I seemed to be a very relaxed individual, and told me that it was almost impossible to be relaxed and stressed/anxious at the same time. That when I thought about it - made perfect sense to me. I was told that I had a a medical problem that need further investigation.
So you see, when the trembling happens (and yes, it is very wierd feeling and I do not like it) I was automatcally thinking that I was trembling because of stress and anxiety. I read your post, and in there you mention the inner trembling, and how it happens after you have been laying down for a time - you have no idea (oh, then again Im sure that you do) the relief and confidence now that this has given me to hear someone say the exact same thing.
I will go over the list of meds etc....and again I thank yo so much for sharing this information with me - truly do appreciate your time. I too have been given some neck exersises and things to help with the stiff neck and shoulders...
Have a wonderful day
p.s. as far as the heart palps, i have those (we must be twins). I've also made sure to have a stress test, exams for the heart of all kinds to ensure my heart is ok. I do tend to think that the palps are anxiety in origin (in me that is) due to the fears/stresses of learning to cope with this. Each morning I wake up, its as if i suddenly remember again the state of health im in..and then the palps.
Do not leave this part unchecked. There's not one doctor, nor one patient that would suggest to guess about the heart. Great wishes and have a good day!!!!!!

Hi there, and thanks. Yes when they did the last MRI they did the head, neck and spinal cord. The neck showed no compressions, a minor bit of arthritis in the neck, but not enough to be of any concern.
I also did stress tests on my heart, and scope tests etc, and found that the heart is fine and working well. The palpatations only happen once in awhile, and I have noticed that they occur when I get too warm, or when I get tired....etc.... It was happening when I took a hot shower, and funny now, but not then, I noticed to that my hands would get really heavy and numb when I had a hot shower, only to learn that the heat from the shower will bring on simptoms.....so now I have cooled down the shower, and nope, I dont like that either.......
Im learning as I go, and likely will have a ton of quesitons as the time goes by. I just started to learn about all of this as of Dec 11th, less then a month ago.
I beleive that knowledge is power, and I am attempting to get as much power as possible. (No I am not going to starting roaring like a lion, or at least if I do, to ensure that no one hears me!!!!!).
Question if you do not mind.....when I get tired, my fingers tingle more, and the electric shock thingy down my back and into my toes increases - hence, the more tired I get, the more symptoms I get????? Does this sound familiar...
Thanks again, and you to have a great day and a wonderful weekend

Hi there Kiera, when my mail notifier told me of a new message on HW - I knew it was you!
Actually the only symptoms that I get when I wake up from a sleep is the inner vibration - otherwise when I lay down and nap - the tingling and other stuff - including the foggy head goes way for the most part.
It is just that darn annoying vibration - which wakes me up in the morning, you know, the mornings when you want to slep in. On the mornings when I have to rise early for work, is it there then - of course not. What the heck?????
One of these mornings I am going to trick it, and not go to work, and sleep in.....ha!!!
Again thanks - to my twin
Well it use to scare me, now it does not, now that I understand what the primary cause is ..... now it just annoys me - oh well it is not the first thing to do that, and I am sure that it will not be the last....
so yes, lets trick this together, I guess Ill have to put in an order for a nice recliner - so that I can nap away. As my wife says when I get cranky cause I have to have a nap....there are worst things in life than having to have a nap.....I see her point. She reminded me that I have spent a life time of ways to find ways to sneak in a nap, and now I have the perfect excuse - so nap away.
Now to give you a bit of an idea as to how I have been dealing with this at home - lets face it - if I am down, the family is down, if they are down, I am down - and the vicious circle continues. So I try to make light of it the best way I can.
My wife asked me the other night to help her clean up after supper so that we can both sit down, relax and enjoy a glass of wine. Course my response was "but honey I can't - I have MS you know, and I have to nap"!!!!!!!
I will not and cannot repeat what she said to me! All in fun of course!!
