Deep Brain Stimulation for Tremor

This video that I just watched seemed very much about the type of tremor I currently have. I have learned exactly this one as being the one used in my brain/body when speaking with my Neurologist about it awhile ago. Very interesting. Having a hand device that turns the implanted simulator on/off. This person talks about how he cannot write with the one hand with it off, but can write with it on. Interesting. Hope this works with the leg/foot too…. Maybe.


Ehhhh…. Need to REALLY make sure that you’re taking the RIGHT amount of medicine. I have been taking ONE of these new pills @ 3x a day. Well, FOR SOME FREAKING REASON, I thought it eventually had to move it up to TWO freaking PILLS @ 3x a day. UGH!

That was an ignorant mistake. My head has been spinning! Aaaaaaaaarrgg!

Straightened everything out last-night, as far as getting the right amount back into my system. I’m WAY better.

Don’t do that…. Things can always happen that you don’t know about. MAKE SURE YOU TAKE THE RIGHT AMOUNT!

This new surgery…..

Back in March, I was commenting more about how this right-hand of mine shaking too much was really bothering me. Welll…. It is either…

  • not shaking so bad.
  • not noticing it.
  • eh, just got used to it. Pretty much the same as not noticing. I mean, it shook bad before and now it just shakes “more” again. Maybe I’ve forgotten how much better it was?

Kinda leaning towards the “not so bad”, but I’m sure that I’ve gotten used to it.

Been sort of surfing through YouTube and found other people who have gone through the same new surgery I’m looking forward to. ……

Easiest way to say anything (like the surgery I’ve HAD BEFORE) is the outcome is not exactly the same for every person who has it done.

Doc from Last Month…

Saw this new doc again today. Just a slight change in the amount of medication, but that was about it. It was discussed that the “tremor removal surgery” has to wait to be decided upon. This doctor has said the surgeon, who particularly does the implant (that I discussed a month ago),  won’t have the time for another several months. Sooooo…. no REAL change.

The Psych…

Well.. with the new Psychologist, here are the things to be done. What I originally thought is that a is there would be new medication to help me with the psych-things (whatever those things are called). I learned that his idea in mind was what to prescribe to me was a medication that I WAS ALREADY ON.

He suggested to INCREASE a med and help with needs. Seizures (one thing it’s good for) is what I don’t need it for anymore. Um, but I have been trying to get that medication LOWERED by using another medication.

Being put back ON the medication that I worked hard to get off by getting this brain surgery??? HELL NO! The whole reason (to me) to have this brain surgery was to get off the stuff. I need to speak with someone else, or something like that.

Need to think about what to do next….

Alot Better Today

With these last couple days, I’ve been feeling as if I was just dealing with side-effects of the new medication. Today I’m just thinking ….. “maybe I’m done with the major side-effects?” HOPEFULLY? But, there’s always going to be side-effects.

I’m not as wore-out as I was the last few.

Awoke and out of bed at a decent time (7 AM). Maybe this day will be the beginning of normal days…. again…
