Damn, I was writing something in the whole page reset on me and erased it. Anyway, I think I have always had "essential tremor" for as long as I can remember. It does have its pluses , like I think my reactions are faster by my high strung nerves and that has helped in sports and dirt bike riding. (My fellow bike riders were surprised how quickly I could ride on a forest trail and miss trees and other objects). When things are about to spill or are droping, etc., people were always amazed how I could quickly react and catch the falling objects or prevent something from making a mess. Later on as an instructor in high performance jets, students were amazed how relaxed I was and would let them go farther in an event before I would intervene compared to other instructors. But I had confidence on my quick reactions. (I almost died once letting the student go to far, lol). But one of the disadvantages is handwriting. It is embarrassing. And of course people think I'm nervous, when I am not, and it does happen with speech also.
I also think my nerves have contributed to my dysphagia, which again is getting worse as I age. If this new treatment is effective I might look into it.
