Many patients suffer from tremulousness and anxiety. This manifests in part by hand tremors. A condition known as benign essential tremor. This may manifest itself as hand or body tremor.This condition may mimic anxiety or panic disorder.The indication for this condition is evaluation by a neurologist and treatment with neurological medications. Otherwise an individual may be incorrectly treated with anti-anxiety medicines which do not address neurological etiology. Patients with traumatic brain injury may display uncontrolled agitation as well as sadness and tearing eyes for no reason. This latter condition is know as Pseudobulbar Affect and is related to organic brain dysfunction. Inderal(propananol) ordinarily used for hypertension is also used for patients who experience panic. Patients schould be aware of the importance of giving their health care provider a thorough history. Accurate assessment is crucial! Diagnosis of mental disorder leads one on the path of psychiatric medicines and psychotherapy. However, if the condition is neurological, patients need to have their health care providers get it right with the initial assessment. Otherwise, one embarks on years or months of treatment which never addresses the problem(s). When correctly diagnosed, patients can derive great benefit from neurological medicines(FDA has a list of approved neurological medicines) and care by a neurologist and when applicable psychologist.Be informed! Be educated about your condition. Informed choices come from this mind set!
