The patient

The tremor in my right hand started about 20 years ago — it was steady when I wasn’t using it, but sometimes would shake when I picked something up.

This happened just occasionally until ten years ago. Then, every time I went to pick up a paintbrush, my hand would shake uncontrollably.
