Welcome to Healing Well. I understand your anxiety and the way you have dealt with it is commendable.
The hand tremor, do you have it all the time? I have a familial hand tremor and I take Propanalol/Inderal 20 mg per day. It gets worse when I am anxious.
IMHO you should check with your physician as other things may cause hand tremors too.
Thanks for the kind words. I really appreciate it.
I am new to the healing well forum. I have had the shakes in my hands and head since I was a kid. Part of it I think was genetic with my father. Only recently have I tried to see a doctor about this. It has hurt my life tremendously. I also suffer from social anxiety disorder. Going out on dates has been very hard since my hands shake uncontrollably. I try and focus and they shake even more. I get very nervous in any social situation. I cannot speak in front of people without a panic attack. I just want to lead a normal life. I am now on Inderal 40mg. It has helped a little bit in social situations. But my hands still shake. I am thinking about asking my doctor to put my on Xanax also. All I want is for my anxiety and nervousness to go away and to fight the social anxiety so I can speak in front of people.
Any suggestions? Is zoloft better for someone whos hands and head shake very badly?
