Anywhere from one-quarter to one-half of individuals with multiple sclerosis develop tremors, like those common in Parkinson’s disease, but multiple sclerosis tremors are typically specific to the arms. Multiple sclerosis tremors are incredibly detrimental to the quality of life, as they are often drug-resistant and completely disabling (approximately 10% of multiple sclerosis patients become incapacitated by tremor).
This is good news for me I fight tremors on a daily basis myself. According to the National MS Society this is a very common problem that people have with multiple sclerosis. This is one of the most difficult symptoms to treat according to doctors. Parkinson’s disease drugs don’t work generally according to many doctors treating multiple sclerosis caused type of tremors.
