I have had tremors for most of my life. For the past year or so they have become worse and I developed myoclonus in my abs. The tremor is in all limbs and face but only happens when moving against gravity. I went to see a neurologist and he put me on Primidone, which made the myclonus much worse. My entire body started to ***k so I stop taking them. I had a CT scan, MRI, EEG, and two different types of blood tests. Everything came back normal, as they say. So, I went back to the neurologist and gave me muscle relaxers! I have not and will not take them. Other symptoms of mine are fatigue, aching joints, muscle weakness, gait disturbance (poor balance), and I feel like my intelligence is not what it use to be. I am at the end of my rope here... I really need some assitance as to what doctor I should see to give me a proper diagnosis or what is really causing the tremors and myclonus. I am a drummer and a guitarist so it's making playing more difficult. I am in the Mobile, AL area...
