Review for International Essential Tremor Foundation, Overland Park, KS, USA
I am 67 years old. For many years, since I was in my twenties, I have had problems with my hands shaking lots. I sold tickets for an air line and always had people asking me why I was so nervous. It really make you feel depressed when you don't know what is wrong. My Father and Grandfather also shook. I just thought that it was something that I inherited and I did! Now my Brother, who is 54 and my Nephew, 32, also shake a lot. I even went to the Doctor to find out what it was. They didn't know. Finally, in the past about 15 years I was diagnosed with Essential Tremor. I went to one of the functions that Emory/IETF put on about 6 years ago, since then have been connected to their website. It is wonderful to know what is wrong with you. On the IETF website, I have found many things that help our entire family. Thanks to all involved, I know there are others out there that feel the same!
