I'm a 43 year old female.

4 years ago I suddenly started experiencing these weird symptoms. I started having symptoms of warm patches on my skin. First it was just the arms, later on these patchy warm feelings moved to other parts of my body as well. I started to get a lot of muscle/nerve spasms. I will just be sitting down watching TV and my toes would start to cramp. If I do any type of exercise it is much worse. I also seem to have acquired tremors around the same time. I also have episodes of dizziness. All this has led to difficulty sleeping as well.

The neurologist said the tremors were due to essential tremors and were harmless.

Can anyone steer me in the right direction?
