Example text

Sitting with the patient’s arms resting in their lap. This allows a rest tremor to be detected, which would be against a diagnosis of ET and for Parkinsonism. 2. Asking the patient to hold their hands out in front of them, to look for postural tremor, one of the characteristics of ET. 3. Asking the patient to perform the ‘finger–nose–finger’ test, which assesses their ability to control the movement of a finger to a target. In this case, the patient moves a finger from their nose to the clinician’s finger back and forth several times.

This is apparent when the hand makes a purposeful movement towards an object under visual guidance and manifests as an increase in tremor as the hand approaches the object. The self-conscious embarrassment and reluctance to expose the shaking in public (sociophobia and harm avoidance) is increasingly being recognized by patients, families and clinicians as one symptom of ET that can have a significant effect on living and coping with ET. In the subgroup of ET patients with intention tremor, mild abnormalities of gait and eye movements have been detected with sophisticated apparatus.

I chose to try the latter first. Having analysed all those awful ET situations in my life, I realized it could all be reduced to a lack of confidence and a fear of being noticed. This was (and is) illogical and unnecessary. I should concentrate on the message being conveyed rather than worrying about the tremor during the presentation. The audience would probably take little notice of the tremor and, if they did, they would not give it a second thought. It was therefore a question of persuading myself that ET was irrelevant and unworthy of the self-conscious agonies it had caused.
