Considering ultrasounds technique for tremor

Recommended Posts


I was diagnosed 5 years ago at 51 with positive datscan.

i have mild tremor in right leg and hand and negligible rigidity and Bradikynesia. Treatement is azilect and 2.1 mg pramipexol with little effect on tremor. Some times I take propanolol since I think it controls better my tremor especially in stressful circumstances.

since tremor is the only bothersome symptom after 5 years would it make sense in your opinion to consider ultrasound technique ?

In my opinion this is clearly a no answer.  You should proceed to be treated with medication and levodopa and not have a hole burned in your brain for early Parkinson.
