Here is My Question:
Do you know what the mechanism of the “internal” tremor in MS could be? I have a tremor or trembling feeling inside my body mostly on the left side including my face and chest but it is not visible. I can feel it in my teeth as if they are chattering. I also have a visible tremor in my left hand that comes and goes but is worse lately. Just wondering what the mechanism of this could be and the best treatment.
Sensory illusions are commonly due to demyelinating injury to the posterior section of the spinal cord but could be found anywhere along the sensory tracts. Illusions are subjective sensations that are noticed by the patient but have no outward manifestations that others can see. Sometimes medications can help with these (see section on the site about “paresthesias”).
