 These new voice tremors are making me emotional. I think joining a group may help me feel more calm. Just a thought.

    I have familal tremors which make my voice and hands tremor. I take propranolol 60 mgs but I started on 40 most. It helps with the tremors. I am very conscious of them, people tell me they're not as bad as I think they are but the band's news is that the meds cause weight gain. I guess what gain is better than voice tremors before I went on the meds my voice was so bad I couldn't speak at all.

      Stormi..I have been noticing a little head shaking for maybe 10 years. Only once in a great while though..then this year my voice got hot big time. Pretty hard stuff..on gabaminton 300 MG 3x day. Not sure about this. It helped a first but 3 weeks ago but yesterday and today it seems less effective. Your username seems appropriate for this condition.Thank you for reaching out.
