Hi new to the forum, I recently had CT and DAT scans both normal, the letter from my neurologist says that I should be given a trial of Propranolol 80mg daily to treat as if this is a essential tremor, although I have to agree clinically that the symptoms are very Atypical.
My question is what does Atypical refer to ? Is this suggesting Parkinsons ? I am 59 years old my symptoms to date are tremor in right hand when doing a range of things in the kitchen, cramps in right leg, numbness in toes and right hand, lack of swing in right arm when walking, a real downturn of energy levels, tired all the time. I am an electrical engineer and frequently HAVE to work on live systems so shaking is not my friend, I have an appointment in September with my neurologist.
What should I be expecting from only my second appointment a diagnosis ? Reading some posts this can Take quite some time and seems to vary from one neurologist to another, i have had these symptoms which are getting worse for about 3 years now any thoughts etc much appreciated.
