Tremors are a common symptom of multiple sclerosis, experienced by around three-quarters of people with the condition, and one that often makes sufferers feel quite self-conscious. For most, the tremors will be mild and occur infrequently, but for some, the tremors may be more severe.
There are four different types of tremors associated with multiple sclerosis, which are often referred to as cerebellar tremors:
According to emaxhealth.com, these common tremors tend to occur when a person is towards the end of an act such as reaching for something or placing their foot and their finger or foot will begin to shake.
These are tremors that appear when a person is either sitting down or standing up, and the body is working against gravity. They will stop if the person lays down.
Nystamus tremors affect the eyes and cause jerking movements.
According to everydayhealth.com, resting tremors tend to occur more in people who have Parkinson’s disease, but it is not uncommon for those who have MS to also suffer from them. As the name suggests, the tremors occur when a person is resting.
Although there is no cure for tremors, there are ways that MS patients can manage them. Lifestyle changes such as avoiding stress, getting plenty of rest and not drinking caffeinated drinks may help those who suffer from mild tremors or help prevent them from beginning in the first place.
