I'm a mom of a 7 yr old boy who has been dealing with hand tremors since birth. Pediatrician has just recently told me that my son has a brain disorder that is causing the tremors and that they will never go away. I'm just wondering if anyone else has kids that suffer from this type of disorder and what you have been told about it and how you deal with it?

My 9yo daughter has some slight tremors stemming from low muscle tone and a genetic disorder. My first advice is: See a neurologist for a second opinion. A pediatrician might recognize symptoms, but misdiagnoses are commonplace. Secondly, how is your son handling it? There are ways that people have dealt with such conditions for a long time and he may find a way that works for himself.
