Conditions with symptom: 'shaking hands'
I repeatedly suffer from some violent tremors/shaking mainly affecting my arms and hands but also my legs and facial muscles to which I couldn't control the muscles or movements. When seeing my Doctor she said that the shaking was characteristic of Parkinson's but that it had come on too quickly, she (eventually) managed to get blood from me and the tests all came back clear. As I already have fibromyalgia and now M.E the Doctor has just put it down to the M.E, but I'm not so sure. Could it be parkinson's disease? How do they test for this?
everyone seems to talk about shaking hands what about wobbling legs? I have trouble walking far as my leg act like I am drunk. I am 57 and still going through the menopause, could this have anything to do with it? M

I have mega tremors in my body which makes my function less but de stress ur body for a while in a dark quiet room and they will calm down, just unfortunatly not for good. My nerologist said it was co-ordination being off and he got me pyhsio to fix it,again it not permanant. It part of fibro.
I have developed constant shaking in my hands, which sometimes affects my legs and started to take regular migraines on the left side of my head. I was extremely fatigued and found it hard to do anything with dragging tiredness. The symptoms are always worse the week before and during my period.I was admitted to hospital and had an MRI which was clear and epilepsy ruled out. They did not check my hormone levels.They are advising it is psychological with a deep rooted issue I am not aware of!!!! I am not happy with this as do not feel anxious or showing any psychological symptoms. I recently had a borderline abnormal smear after being on the OCP for approx 14 months. I decided to take a break from the pill and the headaches have subsided and my energy levels are starting to increase again but I do still have tremor in my hands, left more than right. My GP checked my thyroid (my mum has overactive thyroid)and glucose with a blood test which came back normal. Is it possible the OCP affected my hormones to cause this??
I'm 21 and for the last 3 years I've been addicted to constipation relief pills. I never had problems with being constipated, I was never bigger than a size 8. I started using the pills when I became obsessed with my weight. I am really terrified of purging so that's why taking these pills became an easy option for me. I really wish I could stop, but it's just too hard. I can't have a normal meal without taking 20-40 pills. I'm afraid that someday it can be too late, I'm scared that I have damaged my organs,I get headaches quite often, can't help feeling dizzy and for the last 2 months my heart it's beating very fast and my hands are shaking after I take those pills. Is there anything I can do or anywhere I can go to speak about it?
a lot of the downsides of purging happen with laxative abuse - you're losing fluids which means you're losing salt which messes with your potassium levels which messes with your heart. you really need to go and talk to a doctor about this - your GP should be able to help you. its normal when dealing with laxative abuse to tail down on them rather than stopping them cold turkey. you'll probably need to wean onto a stool softener. your bowel is a muscle, it needs to contract in order to push the food along so you can poo. when you take laxatives they cause it to contract faster than it does normally and it becomes reliant on the tablets in order to do what its supposed to. because you've been taking them for so long the chances are that you've lost muscle tone which will take a while to get back. you CAN recover from this but you will need some kind of medical supervision to do it.
I am a 50 year old female who has been suffering with vertigo for the past 2 years I kept going backwards and forwards to doctors and found I had vertigo last year I'm constantly swaying on the spot, have buzzing in the left ear and I'm off balance I went to see a consultant sent me for some physio which consisted of shaking my head left to right and up and down and walking while shaking my head up and down it was good at first but my swaying and off balance is back does anyone know what I can do? I don't think doctors know what's wrong with me, I'll try get a second opinion. Many Thanks.

Speaking from experience it is unlikely you have a long term medical problem given that it has only started one year ago. Speak to the doctor about the Iontopheresis treatment it sounds more appropriate. Mind you after the treatment the saliva in your mouth dries up so I would recommend some oily foods to eat.
Im EXACTLY the same, i get sweaty hands feet and armpits! i went to the ddoctors and they also gave me a rolling thing to roll over my hands, when i put it on my hands dry up but they go all wrinkly and dont stay dry for that long! when i have to do dancing with boys in P.E its embaressing because i have to explain the problem! PLEASE can someone help me find a cure for this, i hate it and i dont want to have it for any longer! :(
I have been informed of my having Dupuytren`s Contracture by my GP (2012), in both hands this giving me three years in which I`d lose use of both hands. Two others in the family (both Females)also have this condition. My question yet unanswered by anybody is: Why are my hands/fingers being effected in the exact opposite to that of Dupuytren`s? I am unable to bend my fingers so Why is this so, and is it possible that my hands are being effected by two conditions at the same time the second being Carpel Tunnel Syndrome? If so, what treatments are available and what are the prospects of regaining full use of my fingers?
I have dupthrens and going to have surgery to have the facia removed.yes you can have it in both hands usally.from the ring finger to pinky.but do not have the needle down it dosent help had it done on the left hand.and.carpel tunnel has a lot to do with it. The needle is just a tempery fix but even after surgery.it can still come back. Oh this can.even go.to your feet the toes
