Question
Hi,
Last weekend while taking my mother for hospitalization, I felt my left hand trembling for few seconds. I was definitely tensed, but not sure if it could have caused it. Also I had loss of cervical lardosis due to muscle spasm 1 year back. Should I be worried about it? Do I need to consult a doctor or is it normal ?

Thanks,
XXXXXX

Hi,
Thank you for posting your query.

Based on your description, the transient trembling of your left hand is most likely related to anxiety/tension, and there is no need to worry about it.

Also, there is no relation between the loss of cervical lordosis due to muscle spasm and the tremors.

At present, there is no need to see a doctor. However, if the symptoms recur, you may consult a neurologist.

I hope it helps.
Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,

Hi Dr. XXXXXXX

Thank-you for your reply.
I at times have felt an involuntary movement-like sensation in my leg's palm. I am not sure, if its the artery or a nerve. I have high cholesterol and triglycerides levels.

Is it normal? Since my wife too has the same tremor like sensations? (She too has high cholesterol and triglycerides)

Thanks and Regards

Thank you for getting back with more details.

Occasional twitching movements are normal, especially if they occur in a single part of body. However, if they are more frequent or if they involve multiple parts of body, they should be evaluated.

High cholesterol and triglycerides should be treated with medications such as rosuvastatin and fenofibrate. In addition, low fat diet and exercises are also useful.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
