@madprime Thank you.
I got a bit tired of this project after last week, thinking: “Nobody knows how to fix it, why am I taking so much time measuring it?” However, I continued to notice (without measuring) that the tremor seemed to vary a lot. It is only very annoying a few times each day, so if I can reduce these incidents the benefit will have been worth it. I also wondered: How much time is this really taking? Is it possible I’m thinking “takes too long” because I’m just a bit discouraged for other reasons? Let’s see how long it really takes.
So, my goal is to do three days of frequent measurement, starting this morning and ending Friday. I hope to take at least 4 per day. The spreadsheet with results is here: Tremor and Blood Pressure Spreadsheet
This morning’s results:
Prediction: 130/80,70, Tremory: 1
Measurement: AVG: 132/85,60 Tremor: 4.68
The measured tremor is now showing an amplitude using @Beau_Gunderson and @madprime’s Jupyter Notebook on Open Humans. I’m going to continue to predict on my 5 point scale.
Most interesting result this morning is that I predicted very low and my results were also very low. I barely felt any feeling of “tremory.” This showed in the data. I’m interested in this because I hadn’t yet tried to do any fine motor tasks. Is there an overall sensation of tremory that may be based on subconscious noticing of difficulties performing motor actions or on other factors? I’d like to think my intuitions are reliable but it hasn’t always been the case that my predictions are accurate. Image of the measurement:
Finally: It has taken over forty minutes to complete this process. That’s a lot of time! Some of it is working out a relatively new workflow and also writing the notes. I’d really like to do this in less than 15 minutes each time, otherwise I can’t do it more than once a day.
