      That's interesting that you mention this. I have a tremendous amount of shaking and tremors. Most days it's bad in the morning. I get stares from people in restaurants. Some days or doesn't resolve throughout the day. My coworker has begun to notice and comment. I haven't been diagnosed. I'm afraid my doctor will think I'm a hypochondriac and brush me off. Even though I am not a complainer.

      My friend, who had stage 3 cancer, 13 years ago, was diagnosed with Parkinson’s about two years ago. She had to have chemo prior to her lumpectomy to shrink the tumor and that did not work at the beginning, so she had more chemo and then it worked. I am convinced that the chemo caused the Parkinson’s.

      I believe we received too high of dosage of chemo that caused our shaking/tremors. Article I found on Oncology times, December 2001. Chemo induced Parkinsonism. Still searching for more information cause Parkinson meds are not agreeing with me, their side effects. My neurologist was not familiar with chemo could cause Parkinson.

      I looked at your profile, I can't get a handle on the information you provided, but I'm going to give it a shot. I'm on Ibrance right now for MBC. I get what I call the "herky jerkys" about 2 hours after I go to bed. It's not a tremor, but like being shook to wake someone up. Dr. has prescribed meds which didn't help, but only made things worse. I tried drinking more water as we thought I was a little dehydrated. NOPE. Only up more often going to bathroom. I usually get up, walk around, drink some water, pee, then got back to bed. This usually takes care of it. Last night was horrible. They lasted 2 hours while I sat & watched TV. I'll deal with it as long as the Ibrance is working. Oh! the Brain CT came back negative. I'm good.
