I have been chewing a lot of gum!

I am 23 years old <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd I have had <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>tremors</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> for about 4 years now. It initially started at my stomach but now occurs at my neck muscles and seems like it will keep spreading. Could this be indications of Parkinson's disease?
Other possible causes of <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>tremors</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> could be overactive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span>, Parkinsonism disease, alcohol use, certain medications, alkalosis, and low blood sugar. Sometimes previous injury may cause pinched nerve and may be a reason of tremor but this possibility remains low. Therefore, it is quite essential to thoroughly assess the all possibilities here with the help of a doctor. Hope this helps.
I have <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>tremors</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> in my arms, legs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd head which have moved rapidly in the last 12 months, and has my loss of muscle strength.

When I lay down and totally relax, most of the an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tremorsan> dissappear.
Other causes of tremor include thyroid disorders <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd some neurologic disorders such as essential tremor (which would more likely involve the arms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd face before the legs) and parkinson's disease (but with several associated symptoms). If it is not quite a tremor but rather muscle twitching, there an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>arean> several potential causes, with one of the more common ones being benign fasiculation syndrome, or twitching that results from caffiene, anxiety, and excessive exercise.

I believe I am slightly hypothyroid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>nd awaiting further investigations with an Endocrinologist. People here have already explained to me that symptoms of hyper and hypo can often be mixed together.

I am scheduled to hav the DBS surgery on June 28, 2010.
