Show Summary Details

Preview

A 70-year-old man developed episodes of rhythmic shaking (approximately 3Hz) of the left arm lasting for up to 2 minutes and preceeded by a brief period of light-headedness. Occasionally, the left arm shaking was accompanied by an odd feeling but no shaking in the left leg. Attacks occurred a few times a week and were almost always triggered by standing up. Consciousness was never impaired. There was a history of hypertension and type II diabetes and he was taking metformin and antihypertensive medication.
