Re: How is everyone?

Hello Mike, I want to thank you and your lovely wife for sharing HER experience of living with someone with OT. It made me aware of what my husband must experience. I want him to read what your wife wrote and ask how he feels. Also, with OT friends like you, sharing your experience with oxygen thera...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Mike,

As Peggy said, this is wonderful. I, too, will try to get the "okay" from my doctor.

Keep us posted; is it pure oxygen or a mixture? Will wait for your next post. Are you still tremor free?

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Mike, Thanks for the update. When you get the measurements or amounts of oxygen you were given, and post them, I will most certainly consult with me doctor and try to have him give it to me to try. If several of us do this, and have reasonable results, maybe neurologists may look closely into thi...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Peggy,

I will be eager to hear what your family doctor has to tell you. I don't have a Neurologist either. I have been to so many and most don't know as much as I do about OT.

Stay positive ~ I know you will....and keep smiling!

Re: How is everyone?

Hello Peggy,

Do you plan to check with your doctor to see if he/she will allow you to use oxygen? Do you think you would need a script? If so, what would be the reason for the use?

I am eager to try this too.

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Mike, Thanks for your quick response. I do remember when you were in the hospital for your heart problem and found at that time the use of oxygen seemed to help your tremors. Now, this is the third time in the hospital and are having the same results; you are right, this can't be a coincidence. I...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Mike,

I just viewed your video....it's amazing what oxygen has done for you. Like Peggy, I will question my doctor about its use.

How long is your session using oxygen? How often do you have these treatments?

Perhaps you have found something that REALLY helps; I do hope so.

Re: Angela Merkel (DE) and OT

Hello Peggy, I have intended to get in touch with you for some time now, but just don't get around to writing. After reading your post, I decided it was time to write. I do have full body tremors and have had for several years now. I have had OT for over 25 years. When we last saw one another, one w...

Re: New to the forum? post a quick introduction

Hello Hester, My name is Betty and I live in Melbourne, FL. I have had OT for twenty-five years and it took me almost ten years to find out what I have. I saw nine neurologists and none had any answers for me except I should see a psychiatrist, which I did. He told me I didn't need a psychiatrist, w...

Re: How is everyone?

Hi Lorna, So good to hear your news regarding the drug, Sifrol. I have not heard of this one, but I have not seen a neurologist in several years now. I know I have OT Plus, so I just try to deal with it. I may try to find a good neurologist in my area and check out this drug for Parkinson's; certain...

Re: what say others?

Dear Di Di, So good to hear from you and to know you are doing as well as YOU can, at this point. I am happy to hear Gloria and I were helpful to you when you first learned you have OT. It is a scary time for all of us, I think. But...as time goes on, and one learns to accept what we have and then l...

Re: what say others?

Hello Di Di, It has been a VERY looooong time since I have posted, but I do check in to read what others post. You do seem to stay busy, which is good. I find I am not as busy as I used to be. We all know OT is progressive and with each year I realize just how true this is, at least for me. I am now...

Re: Triggers for tremors

Hello all..... Has anyone noticed after some sort of trauma their tremors are much worse? Also, I have noticed when I must take a new medication for an illness, my tremors are worse, as is my ability to walk. I am just getting over a bout of diverticulitis and my ability to walk is almost impossible...
