tremors in my left hand!

Posted by dthomas on Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Well, I am going on 3 3/4 of a month, and i am taking lessons, and I have run into a wall!, My left hand has tremors, and when I am trying to make a vamp or a quick chord change, I am shaking all  over the place, I have to tell you all that i didn't practice yesterday for the first time cause I was so bummed out. My wife was really shocked that  I didn't pick it up, any good ideas out there in my banjo family? I hope you all have some good things to tell me!  Thank for your time  dt

Go to your doctor and find out what the problem is -- maybe it can be fixed -- if you wait around, it might become a permanent problem -- go to the doctor NOW.

Might not be anything at all, might be a huge problem if you don't check it out now.

TYexasbanjo is quite right, go to your doctor, Don. Get that checked out just in case it is anything bad. The banjo needs your left hand.

Could be a pinched nerve. A doctor will be able to tell you for sure.

Could be symptom of a temporary, minor problem and it could be a symptom of a BIG problem. I echo the advice above - Go to the doctor! (This happened to my brother-in-law who was told that this could be anything from a potassium deficiency to Parkinson's disease. Luckily, it was the former.)
