I tried to add a link from the MS society but it wouldn't stick.  Just google "tremors in MS".  I got a lot of information including drugs that may help.  Good luck.

Try this link. I THINK it's the one Gretchen was trying to post. Hopefully it'll work.

Hi there. I have been feeling this internal shaking too. I have not been dx with MS as Drs are still working to find out what is wrong with me. My main compliant is traveling pain that hits my bones/joints. One minute I get stabbing deep pain to my spine that lasts 10 seconds and later I get a pain in my ankle which feels like my bones are being crushed, then its my hands. I had a bone scan, all clear. Also, I have been getting buzzing on and off in my feet. Aside from that, fatigue and dizzy spells. I go to a neuro tomorrow...

I am getting tested for lyme as well.

Good luck with the testing!  I hope that you are able to receive a quick diagnosis.  If they are also testing for lyme check out the lyme forum also and they will give you a list of reputable labs to send the blood to perform the Western Blott.  I am still going through the motions of testing for MS.  Both conditions are not always simple to diagnose.

 

Good luck~

The tremors are really bothersome. I know during my posts I mention them a lot as they are just intolerable!
Pain can be dealt with and I have experienced much you have mentioned king1234 Nothing has been given to help the tremors but I do take pain killers when I cannot take it anymore and neuro just diagnosed Klonopin(generic version) to help with the spasms and he said they may help with the tremors...not so far The neuro said there are quite a few meds that can help the tremors so mauybe next visit he will prescribe one...good luck

One of the big problems with MS is the inability to manage several of the symptoms.  Now this is just my opinion but it seems quite difficult to manage fatigue and it is also difficult to manage tremors.  There are just not a lot of really effective meds out there for either of those.  I wish you all the best of luck in finding something, be it a medication or a different way of doing things, that helps with your symtpoms.
 
Oh man!!  I forgot about my favorite mad vertigo!!  That is another one for which there is vertually nothing that helps.  There are meds that can knock you out so you don't notice the spin and there are anti-nausea meds but nothing that keeps the spin from happening.
 
Well this is helpful!  I think this just turned into a vent!  OK thanks for listening/reading then.
