Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 months ago):
had sciatica and an epidural shot. After the shot tremors started on left leg and now I have been diagnosed with early Parkinsons. Can the tremors be caused by a drug interaction? The tremors stopped after taking a low dose on dopamine but it makes me dizzy.
From this study (12 months ago):
Stopped taking RX months ago and tremors awaken me while sleeping.
From this study (1 year ago):
At its worse I am unable to stay standing and will fall with no warning whatsoever. These seizure type episodes last a while.
