Essential tremor - a mnemonic.

Do you often forget the features of 'essential tremor'? Well shake no more, 'coz here's a mnemonic that will straighten things up for ya!

Essential tremor:

  • More common in males
  • Family history often present
  • It's an action tremor (not resting)
  • Tremor begins in hands > arms > head >> legs (very rarely are legs involved)
  • Rx: 1) Non-selective beta-blocker (Propranolol)
           2) Primidone (anticonvulsant)
  • Alcohol improves the symptoms.

Happy studying, folks :)
