I've been having steroid treatment for another relapse in which I have had a lot of involuntary movements and tremors. My right hand has a tremor, which mostly comes when I am standing still or sitting, so it's I guess a resting tremor. It also pretty much fits the description of a parkinsonian or pill-rolling tremor. When I'm standing my hand kind of flaps back and forth like i'm shaking maracas (sp?), if I'm sitting with my hands on my lap my fingers will curl up and uncurl repeatedly.
Also I still have the chin or lip spasm/tremor that I had a while back. It went a way for a while but came back with these new symptoms.
I also have a neck/trunk tremor sometimes when I am sitting or lying down and very tired. I've noticed this is worse on buses/in vehicles, like I can't compensate for the movement of the bus. It's a no-no rather than a yes-yes tremor, for the most part.
So in my reading about tremors in MS, most of them seem to be intention/action tremors, whereas this is not. It goes away usually when I use my hand for something, unless I relax into the task (e.g. if I've been writing and I rest my pen on the page, my hand will start tremoring around the pen, but writing itself is not shaky).
This seems unusual! Anyway, I had HDIV steroids last week and am anxiously awaiting the hopeful clearup of these new symptoms. The worst thing is not actually the tremor (although it is exhausting) but the feeling of weakness I get along with it, and also neuralgia and numbness and achiness. Hard to explain.
Has anyone else experienced symptoms like these? Did they clear up?
