I finally went to the doctors the Wednesday before last. I had been having problems and was just putting up with them. I finally decided enough was enough! The appointment was for 1:40p.m. but when we got there their computer said the appointment was for 8:00 a.m. Luckily we had the appointment card with us and since it was their fault they took me in anyway. The doctor had me fill out a sheet about what symptoms I was having and then checked me over. He said that from the physical exam I looked healthy except one side of my thyroid was slightly larger then the other. After listening to me complain about my symptoms and witnessing a case of what he described as tremors, which is what I have always called "the shakes", he sent me to get some blood drawn for tests. After the doctor got the test results back he called me and said that the test results were all normal.
I am not happy with this. I was hoping to have something concrete to go on. After going to the doctors and getting tests done, I still don't know what is going on. I still don't think it's normal for your fine motor skills to deteriorate or to have what the doctor said was tremors daily, sometime twice a day. How can my tests come back normal when I am not? I know, it was the wrong tests, but still, I have no idea what direction to go in now. The doctor was no help, he was satisfied with the test results. He had no suggestions of what to do. He said that "some people just have tremors". Maybe that is so, but is it normal for then to happen more and more frequently? I would talk to a specialist if I knew what kind to talk to. I am at a loss. And disappointed. Do I have to just put up with it with no idea what it is? If I have to put up with something, I would at least like to know what it is. I am not happy.
