Hi , My wife has high blood pressure that we need to "accurately monitor as she has tremors in her right arm" I believe (husband) that these tremors reveal themselves at the high diastolic times + 100-160 although I am having a hard time believing the readings from life source blood pressure device.

I have been having chronic full body pain for many years, possibly diagnosed as fibromyalgia, along with anxiety and depression. I have now begun having tremors at times, more often in the mornings. My primary doctor said they are intention tremors. I also have a strong family history of MS, but never diagnosed with it myself. These tremors seem to become in more severe during times of pain. They mostly occur in my left hand, but also in my right hand and I can feel them in my legs. It actually feels like I am having full body internal tremors. Any thoughts as to what I can do or what they might be?
