Hospital visit (Bangkok)

Hello everyone,

My name is Rianne and I'm a young expat here in Bangkok. A few weeks ago I started to have a tremor in my left hand, that slowly got worse and also my right hand started (it looked like I was suffering from Parkinsonsdissease). I went to the hospital (public) and they took good care of me. They did some (blood)tests, gave me some pretty bad medication and a diagnosis, essential tremor. But ... I just don't know what to do with the diagnosis. Because they don't have my whole medical history. In the Netherlands they agree with the treatment so far and yes, I do trust the Thai neurologist, but does anyone have experience with such things in hospital? How do you get your concerns clear to a Thai doctor. I now do have my complete medical history from the Netherlands.

Thanks!
