I'm back again because there have been new developments for me. I came to realize that my kind of OT may be a little different from those of our community. I reported here that my tremor had become very severe, that my legs and ankles get very stiff when I have to stand for a second or two, and that is is very painful . This has caused some surprise, for which I am very sorry. But 2 weeks ago I got to see Professeur Vidailhet, the neurologist who is the specialist of tremor disorders here in Paris, and who diagnosed my condition at the end of the 90s. When I explained my current symptoms, she told me that I am the only one among her about 50 OT cases to experience such extreme difficulties.
When leaving the hospital where this consultation took place, I started to think about something that I explained on this forum about 10 years ago. It is very likely that my tremor is related to my jawbones. There is no contact between my teeth on the left side of my mouth. A stomatologist made me walk out of his office with some imprint paste in my mouth. When I stopped on the street, there was no shaking, I was as stable as before the OT. Subsequent efforts by several dentists to fix this lack of contact were not quite successful, and now I still can't masticate with my teeth on the left side. So maybe this can explain why my symptoms have worsened to this degree. It could be interesting to discover whether other OT patients also have a lack of contact between their teeth.
Again, I am very sorry, Gloria, if I have sounded too abrupt. Please feel free to publish only parts of this message as you will deem useful.
Kind regards to all of you,
