I do not have Parkinson's disease. (involuntary trembling)

I can carry a heaping bowl of hot soup across the room and not spill a drop.
I can eat a heaping spoonful of most anything, and not spill a drop.

I go to fill out a check to pay a bill and my hand and fingers shake like there has been an earthquake. I also notice this when playing golf. I can not putt straight.
Now, since there is no "pressure" involved in making these 4 foot putts, since on many occasions I play alone, then the word "choke" does not apply. The pressure of the situation is not a factor. There might be pressure if putting to win a $1 bet, but to miss a putt that is meaningless, shows it is not "choking."

Any doctors in the house?

Are you taking any medications?

Are you sure that Elavil is an accepted treatment for chronic pain? Elavil (Amitriptyline) is antidepressant.

And there are neurological conditions listed as side effects including:

  • uncontrollable shaking of a part of the body
  • fainting
  • unusual bleeding or bruising
  • seizures
and tremors is also listed on another website.

This could be the source of your problem.

There is significant statistical correlation that Vitamin B12 is beneficial in treating these types of neurological matters. If I were in your shoes, I would definitely give it a try.
