Here is my story(problem),

I am 28 years old now, back when i was in Jr. High School i started to notice that my hands would shake, especially when doing presentations in front of class. Towards the end of my highschool years the shaking was getting worst, my head was slightly starting to shake when nervous or again when doing presentations. I started to seek medical help, i was put in some medications but they only made me sleepy and did not solve the issue. As the years passed the problem worsen, and i continued seeking medical help but have not solved any issues, i been put in dozens of medications some examples of what i've taken: propranolol 20MG and concentra 36MG. I have gone to an exam room to take a brain test i think its called EEI or IEE, also an MRI. Now im facing the problem the worst, when i stand i can feel and even see my body shaking, my legs, arms, head and even my tonge. I can't talk to new people without breaking into the shakes. When using some force or working out the shakes gets worst, or when doing abdominal exercises i feel like my body is going into a seizure because of how bad it shakes. When i go to the dentist i cannot stay still, they always freak out, but i cannot control my head from shaking. Nothing has slowed this problem down for me, i have even done Marijuana to see if it would calm it but it only made me paranoid. I have to say that alcohol does help in an incredible manner. Drinking enough to make my body buzzed stops the shaking almost completely. Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you

  • Maybe you should be screened for porphyria... but you don't have any tummy roubles so maybe not. You have been put on a lot of medicines.... so maybe you are over-doctored a bit.
