Causes And Remedies For Hand Tremors?
Tonight, I want to ask about hyperthyroid disease. Last year I started experiencing tremor symptoms after taking Salbutamol for my asthma. It was the first time I had tremors because of Salbutamol, because as a child my asthma was quite severe, I always took Salbutamol and it’s safe. But after stopping Salbutamol, I still experience frequent tremors, especially in my left hand. I went to a specialist in internal medicine and had tests to determine whether it was a symptom of hyperthyroidism or not. The test results show no indication of hyperthyroid disease. But until now I still often feel tremors. Besides that, I also often feel anxious and twitching in the muscles, before I read in an article that these things are symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Do you think there is a drug that I can take especially to reduce the tremor? Or does it need to be checked again? Thank you!
Hello Emilia, Thank you for the question.
Tremor is a medical term used to describe involuntary repetitive movements of the limb, which generally occurs in the hands or head. Tremors can be caused by a certain condition but often the cause is also unknown. Tremors can be divided into resting tremor (which occurs when the body part is at rest) and action tremor (which occurs when the body part makes movement). The following are some of the causes of tremors:
hyperthyroidism stroke head injury multiple sclerosis Parkinson's disease liver failure side effects of drugs such as asthma medications, corticostroids, antidepressants If this condition bothers you, you can consult a neurologist for further tests because tremors are not only caused by hyperthyroidism. The doctor will ask about your complaints and examine you. In addition, doctors will carry out further tests such as blood tests, CT scans, MRI, or electromyography (EMG) to find the cause. Treatment will be given by a doctor according to your medical condition. However, in general, there is no specific treatment for tremors. Treating the cause of tremor will reduce tremor symptoms. Treatment that can be given by doctors can be in the form of drugs, Botox therapy, or physiotherapy.
