A nerve disorder, Essential tremor (ET) is not a life-threatening disease but can affect different body parts. This neurological condition is often characterized by uncontrollable shaking in different body parts including head, tongue, hands, chin, arms and larynx. A majority of people are able to live normal lives with this condition. However, it is only when these tremors become extreme that they can cause disability.
One of the most common movement disorder, it is estimated that more than 10 million people in the USA have got affected by this disease. This neurological disease can affect a person falling in any age bracket; however, it most commonly strikes a person in his middle age or during adolescence.
No treatment is also an option if you are dealing with mild tremors. However, if you are suffering from extreme essential tremor that interferes with your ability to function, there are treatments that help you improve symptoms.
Oral drugs can help reduce the severity of ET. Various drug options include Mysoline, Propranolol, Inderal, Neurontin, the tranquilizers Klonopin, Xanax, Ativan, and Valium. Alternatively, Botox is also seen as a treatment option. Botox is best when used for the treatment of head and vocal tremors. Doctors often start with a low dose and continue up till the tremors are erased completely.
