I have recently been getting massive tremors and shaking when I stretch, or yawn. This is pretty troubling. When I am in bed and I do a little stretch my whole body shakes like a scene from invasion of the body snatchers movie. It also is apparent when I do something as benign as a yawn.

New therapeutic target

Went to Cambridge today for a check-up. As I came out of the lift I bumped into Raven (Robin) - what a small world.

I have now met four posters on this site - Raven, Muu, Loriyas and Jaded. Can anyone beat that?

I never want to meet Lyon (because of the shiny shirts mainly) or Chris55 (who is a sandwich short of a picnic) - just thinking out loud.

I'd like to meet Jimmylegs ...
