    • Thank you David and Mimi! I really appreciate you sharing your stories and for all the good advice!
    • no books that show much research on Mucuna EXTRACT... only on the whole herb.

    • Hi Everyone! I don't sure that this is going to help for sure since I think I don't have PD but I hope it will I've been struggling with the whole body internal shaking for almost a year and I've been going to doctors and they didn't know what it is. Everytime I was trying to concentrate and think or even watch a movie the internal shaking became worse. I was thinking that I might have some kind of neurological disease. Then I've found that I have some of the Cushing's high cortisol symptoms: A little weight gain
      Slow healing of cuts, insect bites and infections
      Loss of emotional control
      Weakened immune system
      Decreased libido And some of the people who has Cushing's syndrome has internal tremors. I used to do push ups, pull ups, squats but the last year I mostly had aerobic type of training which sometimes made the tremor worse. Occasionally I did push ups, pull ups, squats and once I noticed that after a day or two after training I had less tremors. I was thinking to try to do push ups, pull ups, squats for a few days in a row. I added more carbs to my diet - white rise 3 times a day and some proteins and did the exorcise for 4 days in a row, on the first three days the tremor became worse, but on the fourth day, I started to feel a lot better. This is the training schedule I'm currently using: Monday - push ups 3x20
      Wednesday - pull ups 3x10
      Friday - squats 3x15
      I also eat enough carbs and proteins. My theory is that you need to increase your testosterone which balance cortisol I doubted that a simple training with carbs might help but magically it did. I hope that would help everyone as it did for me, if so please share with anyone who has the same problem
      I created the page with the whole story and my training schedule, I hope that it may help someone: http://internaltremorcure.pw
    • Dave - that's great that you have a doc that will do the procedure under local most of the time.  That, IME, is not the norm.
    • ShopGuy - when I get the papers out of the car I'll post up that info.   FWIW, with the increase in the meds I will say that I already feel less agitated and anxious.  Hopefully that continues and the tremors get better controlled too.
