3t 32 channel head coil is what you should ask for and travel to if you need to drive to get one. It is worth asking for. It costs only 500 dollars at our facility.

In brief: Yes

Obviously it's bothering/worrying you.
Go back to the doctor just to be sure. 2 years is a long time.

May be benign essential tremor, but due to changes in frequency and intensity, I would get re-evaluated
Dr. Michio Abe
Internal Medicine

In brief: Yes

It's quite possible that your neurologist thinks your head tremor is due to essential tremor, which is a chronic, progressive but benign condition, largely hereditary.
Head shaking is not uncommon in essential tremor. There are many ways to treat it, including primidone, beta blockers, gabapentin, benzodiazepines, and even botox. See your neurologist to discuss your diagnosis/treatment options.
