The Cause Is Often Trembling, Stiff Hands When Writing And Talking Stuttering?
doctor, I am 23, often trembling, stiff when writing, dancing, drawing, etc. It is also often difficult to pronounce, such as stuttering. I want to ask whether this type of my disease can be cured medically? ,,,, Am I suffering from Parkinson’s?
Good afternoon, thanks for the question
Parkinson's is a disease of nerve cell degeneration in the middle part of the brain that produces the neurotransmitter dopamine. This disease mostly occurs after the age of 50 years, and only a small proportion of cases are diagnosed before the age of 40 years. At the age of young adults is very unlikely to be diagnosed with Parkinson's.
Early symptoms of Parkinson's disease include:
- Weak or feels more rigid in parts of the body
- Smooth shaking on the hands when not doing activities
Tremors occur because of interference with the part of the brain that functions to regulate the coordination of muscle movements. Some types of tremors are genetic, or are part of symptoms of certain diseases and conditions, including:
- Increased levels of thyroid hormone
- Multiple sclerosis
- Head injury
- Parkinson's disease
- Heart failure
- Use of certain drugs
- Excessive caffeine consumption
Further physical examination is needed to assess motor function, sensory, balance, motion coordination and so on. Other additional examinations such as electromyography (EMG), CT scan, or MRI may be needed for diagnostic aids.
In some types of essential tremor, the cause is unknown and does not need special treatment. However, if the symptoms of tremor greatly interfere with activities accompanied by other movement disorders then treatment is needed to reduce the symptoms and overcome the cause based on the results of physical examination and support.
You should immediately consult your current condition with a neurologist for further evaluation.
That's all, hope you can help
