My mum is suffering from internal tremors all up her body,

Customer Question

My mum is suffering from internal tremors all up her body, hot legs that feel hard, flushed cheeks
JA: The Doctor can help. To begin, how long has your mother had the tremors? Has she used any medication for it?
Customer: About three weeks and no she's not had medication for it
JA: Thanks for that. Has she seen a doctor about the tremors?
Customer: Yes and he has done a brief neurological test on her and she is having blood tests done on Saturday but she is feeling very low about them today as she feels that her face feeling flushed is a new symptom
JA: Thank you so much for your answers. Finally, is there anything else in her medical history the Doctor should know?
Customer: Yes she is diabetic, asthmatic, has had lung cancer which was operated on last year and which took away the cancer, takes medication for her blood pressure, is overweight and has stopped taking CBD oil about two weeks ago due to fears that this may have caused the tremors

My mum does not have these tremors all the time but they do come on a few times a day and she describes them as an internal buzzing with no external shakiness
