Hi, I am very new to this, this support group seems like a breath of fresh air to me, reading some of the posts has given me the courage to post. So I am 30 (31 next week ). I was diagnosed with ET when I was 17, I didn't really pay much attention and if I'm honest didn't really believe it. My tremors have gotten worse the older I've become, I have ruled out tobacco, alcohol and caffeine as these make it even worse. I cant have a full cup/glass when I have a drink as I spill it, I eat smaller food with a spoon as I can't keep anything on a fork, my head has become noticeably worse during the day and it takes around 2-3 minutes for it to relax when I get into bed. I have tried different medication and nothing relieves it at all. I also have internal tremors and these are not very nice.
My main question is, has anybody found anything helps them? Other than medication.
Thank you you for reading my post :)
