Botox for bad hand intention tremor

Just wondered if anyone has had Botox for a hand tremor please? My left hand shakes quite violently whenever I go to use it and has been like this for 3 years now.

No, is the short answer.
I have a bad intention tremor as well, and it is only three weeks ago that my MS Nurse said that there was nothing they could do for me. I see a consultant in two months and plan to ask again.
AFAIK there is no reliable treatment short of surgery, and since the cause is in the brain, there is no way I will consider letting someone with a scalpel loose on my head (others may not agree).

Thanks for your reply Geoff. I will have to see what my ms nurse says.
