Tremors

Many people with multiple sclerosis experience some degree of tremor or uncontrollable shaking. It can occur in various parts of the body.

Tremor occurs because there are plaques-damaged areas along the complex nerve pathways that are responsible for coordination of movements.

People with multiple sclerosis who have tremors may also have associated symptoms such as difficulty in speaking (dysarthria) or difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia). These activities are governed by many of the same pathways involved in coordinating movement.
