Review for International Essential Tremor Foundation, Overland Park, KS, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had Essential Tremors for thirty years. I had been on all of the medication prescribed for them and eventually they had stopped working for me. I found the Essential Tremor website and began researching all of the different solutions including DBS( deep brain stimulation) surgery. My neurologist had suggested this surgery to me in 2009 and I had told her no but as I read the results and watched the videos of the people who had the surgery, I began to change my mind and decided to try it. I had the surgery in Omaha on July 26 and when my neurologist turned on my stimulator on August 30, I no longer had any tremors in my hands or my voice. I think the International Essential Foundation website was the turning point for me and it has changed my life.
