Can you treat tremors and nervousness in grave's disease?

Yes: The best way, of course, is by treating the graves' disease and getting the thyroid levels back to normal. But that can take time, so if symptoms such as heart pounding or racing, shakiness, or feeling nervous or jittery are causing problems, many doctors give a kind of blood pressure medicine called a bets-blocker to help with these. Examples would be propranolol, atenolol, or metoprolol.
