My grandfather and father had tremors, however, they were never diagnosed. They just called it "The Palsy". When I was 15 I noticed (along with others) my hands shaking whenever I was in a stressfull situation. The tremor progressed and by age 16 involved my head and voice. When my small rural community got a neurologist I made an appointment for a diagnosis. After quite a few test I was told I had BET Syndrome. I am now 57 and am currently on 120mg of Propranolol, 50 mg of Primidone 3 times a day, and 1 mg lorazapam 2 times a day. This seemed to work extremely well for a while, however, over the last 2 I have noticed the shaking progressively getting more intense.

Thanks,
