I have had functional tremors for 18 months. I usually shake at my hands and feet. Not as bad when first diagnosed. I take Ativan 1 milligram when I have a tremor. Tremors usually don’t last very long but they are very exhausting as my hands and my legs and my feet tighten up. Doctor tells me It can stay with me for the rest of my life or I can just go away. Doctors don’t seem to know too much about functional tremors. Tremors seem to come on with stress.
