Dear Dr. Roach: I am a 49-year-old woman who had a massive heart attack in April of last year. My father died of a massive heart attack at 49 when I was 3. I have four stents in three arteries and am on Brilinta, low-dose aspirin, blood pressure medication, etc.
I have had essential tremor for all of my life, first noticing the tremors in middle school. The tremor is in my hands, making writing nearly impossible, and I have head bobs. I have an internal tremor that never stops.
A previous practitioner prescribed a months trial of beta blockers several years ago. I noticed no relief with the tremor but was physically ill for the first 30 minutes of the morning in the first two weeks of the trial. Recently, while doing some research, I found an online blog regarding essential tremor and CBD oil. Nearly all of the bloggers found some level of relief using this treatment.
