Hi, Betty. Tremors are fairly common. That you have noticed hands and legs starting at the same time is something I haven’t come across before and makes me wonder if Bob might have a nutrition deficiency or blood chemistry imbalance. Loss of mobility is certainly a game changer and I think it may be worth getting some tests to see if something other than Bob’s dementia is causing this. Hugs. S.
Jim had a problem with this a while back and his neurologist reviewed his meds and discovered one that with another one he was taking was cause had that doctor change to different med and took care of it. Might want to check blood pressure and sugar levels also.
My husband is being followed for Parkinsons, too. His hands sometimes shake and his walking gait is indicative of it but so far they think it is stroke and dementia related.
Have you had his thyroid checked? Years ago my legs began to shake and it proved to be a thyroid issue. Just one more possibility. Good luck!
Make sure that he’s drinking about 6-8 cups of water a day to prevent UTI . I sometimes add cranberry juice and pomegranate juice to the water. My husband has tremors sometimes on his right hand and leg. I use music for him every day and evening. It helps him to relax.
