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

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.

My husband has Lyme disease he had a reoccurrence with nervousness and stiffness on doxycycline 100mg 7 days. Is that enough treatment?

My husband has Lyme disease he had a reoccurrence with nervousness and stiffness on doxycycline 100mg 7 days. Is that enough treatment?

Probably not but...: Acute lyme disease responds well to Doxycycline though lyme specialists advise 200 mg 2x/day for 30 days. If his recurrence is due to a new bite i advise that dose. If it's recurrence of previous infection, as dr. Raff mentions, this is a controversial subject. There is strong evidence lyme can persist (http://bit.Ly/1ffxjxl) but i feel antibiotics are seldom effective for chronic lyme.See comment:. ...Read more
