Tremor Diagnosis

Chris has had a tremor that has affected his hand coordination and movements for his entire life.   It has gotten progressively worse, so he got a referral to see a neurologist to see what it was and if anything could be done.

The doctor said Chris has a Benign Essential Tremor.   He did get a prescription for antiepileptic primidone, and we'll see how well he tolerates it.   We have an appointment in mid-October to see how the treatment is working.

Chris' last phase 2 Cardiac Rehab session is tomorrow, so he'll be having his graduation and getting a T-shirt.

DaVita appointment coming on Friday.
