I have multiple sclerosis (MS), how can my tremors affect my life?

ANSWER

Tremors can be tough to handle in social situations. People who have them may feel they need to isolate themselves. That can lead to depression. A psychologist or counselor can help you find ways to feel more comfortable in public and keep the tremors from changing how you live your life.
