SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) I'm a 4th year pod student. I discovered this year I have a significant resting hand tremor especially when I'm under stressful & social situations. It seems to distress me more than it should. My current worst nightmare: Suturing in the OR. Match day is next week, and I anticipate I will match at a well balanced program that includes a fair amount of surgery. Sadly, my biggest fear about starting residency is dealing with this tremor. I've read a lot about the issue on other forums, but I guess my question is if there is any advice for my specific situation directly from the podiatry arena. I have considered getting a prescription for a beta-blocker for surgery days, but worry that it's too much of a crutch. Any advice is appreciated.
