Current age: 17. At age 6 nice handwriting became almost unreadable. Essential tremors in limbs becoming more severe. Limbs get numb if laying on side. Consistant blurred vision when standing up. Sees spots when he gets hot. Suffers from mild anxiety.
Grandfather has "tics".
No history of drug abuse. No current use of prescription, otc, or street drugs. (Yes he's been tested) Has normal blood-work, ua, copper lvl, blood-pressure & MRI of brain.
Have tried: Zoloft and Propranolol with no notable improvment.
I am looking for a possible diagnosis, advice or a Specialist Physician Referral. We are not having a whole lot of luck here. If you have any ideas or advice, we would love to hear from you. Sincerely, Symptom Advice
