Hi. I've been suffering from head tremor that developed around when I was diagnosed with severe social anxiety. I've seen two neurologists but they determined nothing was wrong; they claimed they didn't even see any tremor. It may be unnoticeable, but it's still more than annoying - as I get anxious in public, my head tremor gets worse and worse. It stresses so much that I can't go to a crowded place without a nervous breakdown afterwords. I know you wouldn't understand why it bothers me so much, but it's hard to explain. I've tried not to care about it but just can't. I have visited 4 therapists to no avail. Dozens of medications didn't help me either except Xanax.

So basically botox is my last hope, but like I said, I have no diagnosis. I'm planning to visit another neurologist soon. Do you think it's possible to get an injection if I make and sign a consent form stating the doctor takes no responsibility if something goes wrong?

If the doctors confirm that it isn't a nerve damage problem, you should probably see a therapist about your social anxiety. Facial tremors can be a result of stress.
