I have had ataxia for over 20 years - I am now blind and in a wheelchair and have very poor dexterity. This week, during the night, I had a bad episode of having a tremor in my leg and I really couldn't stop it, for over half an hour. In fact, it was like a panic attack but I am taking medication for panic attacks. Has anybody else experienced this type of tremor in the legs, and if so, can anyone suggest anything that I could do to stop the tremor, and the breathing caused by panicking?
My husband, who is my carer, was also very concerned and worried.
