    I seem to have the 'muscle twitching' in my eye-lid. And my Partner, who hasn't been diagnosed, but we both think has ET - gets it in his leg of an evening - usually the left one i.e. feels the need to move it !

    Can anyone tell me why this's listed under Cancer iris quiet disturbing.

    As I have been diagnosed with Essential Tremor but not under note cancer umbrella.

      Hi Joan,

      It was under Cancer because that is where the original poster put it. I have now moved it to Muscle Disorders group and created an A-Z title of Tremors linking to Muscle Disorders. I am still rationalising titles in the forums and will add other A-Z titles later so discussions can be placed in the correct group. If you see anything in the "wrong" place you can use the Report link to notify us which will help keep things in logical places.

      Regards,

      Alan

      Hi Garry,

      Quite correct so I have moved this again and added titles of Tremor and Essential Tremor to the A-Z lists going to Neurological Disorders.

      Thanks for pointing this out, I am still rationalising things so if you do see anything else out of place please send me a Private Message and I will fix.

      Thanks,

      Alan

    Yes, I have cramps in fingers and hands (difficult if you are knitting, for example) and have recently had twitches in my eyelids. I was diagnosed in 1980's and tremor affects both hands, head, etc. I have probs with pouring, using sissors, stirring, drinking, toothbrushing etc.
