Curious as to what would cause: brain fog, hand tremor, eye twitch, joint pain, acid reflux, lightly bleeding gums, anxiety and impending doom?

Too many symptoms: A symptom diary is helpful in such cases. One can write down the symptoms that happen each day, along with the activities that day, the foods eaten (including drinks), and medications taken. Write on a big calendar. Include whether the medications help the symptoms. Then a doctor can START with the most bothersome symptoms, as multiple symptoms usually means several visits to the doctor. ...Read more

Low ceruloplasmin blood test is 15 and range 20-60. Have palatal tremor and eye pain. Chances of it being wilson and can treatment reverse tremor?

This is serious: Either you have wilson's or your don't. If you do have wilson's, we can manage it with your compliance. Your physcian knows how to do the workup; serum copper is just a not-that-good screen. Don't even try to estimate the odds; just remember how horribly treacherous wilson's is, and how grim missing the diagnosis would be. ...Read more

Wilson's testing: Palatal tremor is not a typical manifestation of wilson's disease compared to arm tremor affecting proximal muscles. However, with the low ceruloplasmin, follow up testing including liver function tests and 24 hour urine quantitation can be useful. The gold standard continues to be liver biopsy in cases that are uncertain, but this is an invasive test. ...Read more

Temporal arteritis: Can be identified by blood tests as well as a good physical examination by your ophthalmologist. A CT scan is not needed in most cases. If the blood work suggests you have temporal arteritis then a temporal artery biopsy can completed to confirm the diagnosis. Please see your doctor immediately if you suspect temporal arteritis since it can lead to permanent vision loss relatively quickly. ...Read more
