A member mentioned this a couple of months ago and I had not heard much about it, now new research shows that shots of Botox may ease hand or arm tremors.

Botox May Ease Multiple Sclerosis Tremors

Are you experiencing hand or arm tremors? Would you consider having Botox injections?

Hello Elizabeth,

I hadn't heard about this. I have a pretty severe intentional tremor in my right hand. I will have to give the idea some more thought. I would like to see some more clinical trials though with a bigger cohort.

Hi Dave -

I tried to grab the link to view the actual study to see when a larger study is planned but the subscription fee stopped me!

If muscle weakness turns out to be a common side effect would you consider it?
