Re: How is everyone?

Mike, Sorry we can not be in Omaha to see everyone. Would love to hear you with your great sense of humor. We met in Rochester MN at Mayo clinic research meeting. A few years ago I was having a cough and doctor said it may have been because I was taking an "ace inhibitor". He told me to stop it for ...

Re: How is everyone?

I have not really timed myself about how long I can stand. I usually just automatically lean against something or keep moving my feet a little while I am talking to someone. I would guess it doesn't take long for me to sit. I will try to time myself for you!

Re: How is everyone?

Kathy R. I live in MN. I just sent my "spit" in today for DNA. Not for medical but for heritage. My son and his wife gave me the package for Mother's Day. Should be interesting. If Orthostatic tremor was more common perhaps a DNA for medical reasons would be educational. I have had bulging discs als...

Re: How is everyone?

Kelly,what is DBS? I noticed you mentioned Mayo clinic. I was diagnosed there and Gloria's group had a meeting there a few years ago. Is anything going on there for OT? Did you meet Dr Matsumoto or Dr. Klein? I live in MN. I have not been involved much except reading notes on Face Book on the OT sit...

Re: How is everyone?

Merry Christmas from MN. We are suppose to get snow and low temps so time to walk in the heated garage here.
People with OT on face book were talking how walking and exercise has been helping them. Guess I need to do more since I have become lazy lately.

Re: How is everyone?

Gloria, Sorry to hear about the spine problems. It can be very frustrating and painful. Someone told me the other day that she did not mind getting older but aging was not good! When I get a problem and they say it is "age related" it is annoying to say the least. Best of luck with the other health ...

Re: How is everyone?

Has anyone seen the group of people on Facebook? The are under "Primary Orthostatic Tremor".
The group is getting bigger as time passes. Lots of interesting posts too. Much like this one where people tell us how they are doing. Check it out if you can! The more the merrier eh?

Re: How is everyone?

About the only exercise I can do is biking since I sit down. Did not do much of that last summer either since my husband had a hip replacement. Poor excuse eh? The trail is about a block from our house and I COULD bike without him for awhile. When the winter melts off we will try again. Never had th...

Re: How is everyone?

Hello to everyone but especially to Mike. Recently I have had a dry cough for about 5 months. My doctor said it was caused by my blood pressure pill. (Benazepril or Lotensin) I had been taking it for many years. The doctor said it happens sometimes even after many years. As some of you people with O...

Re: RESEARCH & MEETING IN OMAHA, NEBRASKA

Mike, Sorry to hear of your health problem. You were such an inspiration to us at the Rochester meeting. You will be missed. Get well soon! I was able to arrange time for the meeting in Omaha even though I am not eligible for the research study. Looking forward to see "old friends" and meet new ones...

Re: How is everyone?

I also have been rejected by the Omaha research team due to vertigo.
I did find out from Dr Matsumoto at Mayo, that the essential tremor I have is a part of OT.
