Is it usual to have a tremor that cannot be seen


I often feel as though my tremor is really acute but it is not visible. I also have a tremor that can be quite violent and am sometimes unable to distinguish between the two.

At times I am able to control my tremor by relaxation but this needs time and patience and sometimes does not work. I just can't understand how my tremor seems so real but cannot be seen.

Does anyone else have experience with this problem?

There is something called "internal tremor" which may explain it. I have had the same thing and it can be very annoying.

I can feel a tremor coming. Sometimes I get them while I'm watching The News.

That says a lot about The News. It is always depressing. Need some good News, I think. Mine are usually worse in the evening and occur whether I am at home or out. Mind you I don't tend to go out evenings for this reason. Coward that I am.

yes I know what you mean I sometimes feel really shakey inside

I, too, experience the internal tremors. I sometimes feel as if my insides are "vibrating." It is an awful feeling. I awakened this morning with the sensation of my brain shaking....not violently, just a gentle shaking in the back of my head. It is such a weird feeling. Because of this I got up at 4:20 am and took my Sinemet....the gentle shaking has passed.

I also have these feelings almost makes me dizzy.I take stalevo and requip

Yes, I have "visceral off" and get horrible sensation in lower left ab radiating down to knees. Sometimes a bit like labor (childbirth). I groan and have to excuse myself at those times.

I also have the internal tremors, especially in the evening after a long day at work on my is a very strange sensation.

I have the internal tremors in my torso. It's the oddest feeling.

(Taking Requip and using transdermal Emsam)

I have tremors in my mouth. When wake in the morning, my teeth start chattering as fast as they can go. Also after I go to bed at night.

My husband says it feels like something is eating him inside that is how he explains that internal tremor feeling
