Menopause and tremor

01/04/2008

Question:

Hi, i had a hysterectomy in march last year but without removal of the ovaries. I wasn`t menopaused yet. I`m having a problem with the thumb of my right hand (im left handed): it sometimes shakes involuntarily (back and forth movement) when im at rest. ive had this problem before the operation. What could be its cause? Could it be the start of Parkinson`s? Will it increase?

Answer:

Your tremor should be discussed with your primary physician or a neurologist.  It is not related to menopause.
