My mom has had tremors in her face and hand for a long time now. It has become so bad that today she had to stay home again due to the fact that her mouth was shaking so bad you can hear her teeth collide, as if she were chomping down on something. In the past she had two herniated disks, which were treated by surgery. Now the only options doctors give us is eventual brain surgery. She might be loosing her job if today doesn't go well. We just need suggestions on what to do next.

  • Does your mother take any drugs like methyldopa which might cause shaking of head? Has Wilson's disease been excluded in her case?johnaa@hushmail.com
