Hi all, sorry for the poor netiquette. (Popping in here and leaving comments without an introduction). My name is Ed. (George was just cuz I was frustrated everything I wanted was taken dunno why it popped into my mind). ;+)
Anyway, March 2016 I developed a tremor in my right lower arm/hand. I went to a couple of different doctors. One said Essential tremor, the other said Parkinson’s. So I just self medicated for a while. Reading here and experimented with antihistamines. (With large enough doses of Diphenhydramine I could almost completely knock out the tremor. But the side effects weren’t worth it). And:
I do that stack (figuring if Parkinson’s is destroying brain cells maybe if these things can help me grow new ones maybe I’ll break even) and LOTS of other supplements (including 4 grams Thiamine HCL) every day
I FINALLY got in to see a movement/motion specialist this past December. (They are rare around here). She said Parkinson’s and prescribed C/L 25-100mg 2 tabs three times a day. She said my tremor is quite aggressive and would take a larger dose than she wanted to give me to knock it out. But after a couple days I wasn’t noticing much improvement except on the way up and down at each dose. So I surmised it was too much. (Also doing Macuna Pruriens). So I cut back to 1 tab 3 times a day and see more improvement, though it isn’t putting any real dent in my tremor. I did mannitol for a few months, but quit when there was the controversy about good or bad bacteria. The only thing it was doing for me was improving my sense of smell.
Anyway, that's all for now. Thanks... Ed
