Diagnosing and Treating Tremors (Podcast Tuesday)

When people experience tremors, or uncontrollable shaking, they tend to think of Parkinson’s disease. But other things can cause this involuntary rhythmic movement, including:

  • Essential tremor, another condition with fewer symptoms than Parkinson’s
  • Stress
  • Consuming too much caffeine

In this week’s podcast, Matthew Barrett, MD, discusses the causes behind tremors and how doctors diagnose and treat them.

    I have tremors and would like to know the cost of a treatment. My doctor will not give me medication to control the tremors because they have bad side effects.

      Thanks for reaching out to us. The cost of any procedure can vary widely based on your specific condition. The first step would be to schedule an appointment with one of our neurologists, during which you could learn which treatments might be best for you and get a sense of your financial responsibility. If you would like to do that, please give us a call at 434-924-2706.

    I have essential tremors and experience debilitating oscillation (dizziness) that is only relieved by no activity. Could I be a candidate for treatment?
