Violent Shakes, Neurologist Appointment


So a few weeks ago, I had an episode of violent shakes. It lasted about 36 hours, straight and non-stop until my BF convinced me to go to my doc’s. I had an appointment only 2 more days away and had been holding out. So I went.

Thankfully, I was prescribed a medication that stopped those horrid shakes. Violent shakes and muscle twitches that involved my entire body, including my face and even my mouth. It was very, very scary.

Today, finally, I go to see the neurologist to hopefully start on a path to find out what has been causing these episodes. Yes, plural. It was not the first time that this happened. More like the 4th. But this was the worst one for sure.

Waiting on a diagnosis SUCKS. I’ve been here before and it sucks big time. Not knowing is the worst. For instance, my mom’s mom passed away with a brain tumor. Mom had inoperable cancer in her esophagus. One of her sisters had uterine cancer (if I recall correctly) and passed from that. So … yeah, I’m more than concerned here.

Don’t worry, I’m not running amok online with self-diagnosis nor scaring myself with what if I had this, or that. It is the waiting that sucks. Worrying and wondering. Hurry up and wait, as usual! Ah well, what will be, will be.
