Anon As ET is a complex disorder, there are several obvious variables that will determine how difficult it will be to live and cope with ET, and this applies to affected individuals and their unaffected family members. • • • • Severity Response to medication Age of onset Whether it runs in the family theFACTS | 17 essential tremor | theFACTS • • Anxiety • Diet How aware you and people around you are that ET is a real condition, a clinically defined movement disorder In this chapter, we will consider some of these variables, and where possible offer solutions using the experiences of affected individuals and family members.

Discuss it; if possible talk about other people in the family who are affected, and try to convince a child that it is an unfortunate medical condition. It is nothing to be embarrassed about; nor does it reflect badly on them as human beings. This may not stop the playground comments, but the knowledge that it is not serious or bizarre will provide some protection. If it becomes a serious problem at school, a quiet word with the teacher(s) might help if they have not already noticed either the tremor or the bullying.

The diagnosis of ET therefore first requires that the patient does not have symptoms that are associated with other movement disorders, and the most common disorder that could be mistaken for ET is the early stages of Parkinson’s disease. Whilst tremor is a feature of both ET and Parkinson’s disease, the way that tremor is manifested (action tremor in ET versus rest and action tremor in Parkinson’s disease) and other disorder-specific symptoms (accompanying rigidity and slowness of voluntary movements in Parkinson’s disease but not ET) make it possible to distinguish between them.
