Thread: Help - Hand Tremors - Making Clutch Action Difficult in 1st Gear

    Yes, there seems to be a small difference between just enough magnesium and "too much water drawn into the colon" - user beware.

    Damn - such a small thing like magnesium supplements can make a huge difference in quality of life.

    We went out and rode 200+ miles yesterday up to the north side of Mt. Hood from Portland - no issues with my hands!

    This is amazing as my GP Dr. had hand tremors and you'd think he would have been studied up on it to recommend some alternatives - he always told me they were there for the duration.

    I can type again! Hope this holds!

    Glad to hear you are doing better.
    I think I would be looking for a new GP.

    I had the same thought. If the tremors don't go away and taking medication isn't an option because of drug interaction and/or side effects, then perhaps going the direction of a DCT may be something to seriously consider, so long as it's safe for you to ride.
