Hi there, I've been having shaky hands for about three years now -- simply put, my hands aren't stable as they used to be. The tremor tends to lower down when I'm totally relaxed, but also tends to increase it's intensity during temeprature extremes (too warm, too cold). But anyhow, they aren't stable as they used to be at all. However, it hasn't made me any problems when doing tasks which require using hands -- I can do anything. It's just that I have the feeling that if I start doing something, they will start to shake. I've been taking Metoprolol (beta-blocker) for about a year now (hypertension) but it didn't help with my tremor. I am extremely depressed with this because I'm having thoughts of leaving dental school and choosing something else -- not related to health /or where I don't have to have precise hands/. That's killing me to tell you the thruth... I am probably going to visit a neurologist tomorrow, but I'm afraid of what he will say... Darn. Any of you have a similar problem? Can a dentist have shaky hands?
