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?
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.
Has anyone ever had a panic attack that was brought on by the sight of a total stranger? I've always worked in customer focused jobs. Nightclubs, retail and now in a bakery. Always front of house, meeting new people everyday/night. I changed jobs around 8 months ago to a well known bakery (rhymes with legs) and a customer came in and made a compliment about my voice. No big deal but now when he comes in I start sweating and shaking. I literally can not serve him! I don't find him attractive, the poor bloke is not rude, he is always polite and smiles but I absolutely dread him coming in each day. I don't know why. If the shop is quiet and I see him come in then I can breath deeply, serve him and try and control my shakes but if it's busy and I see him in the queue then I will start sweating, shaking, feel physically sick and have to leave the counter! It's absolute madness. It's getting so bad that I want to leave my job. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
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
Hi, I am Antionette. I have had my head shaking, so much that other people would notice it. I occasionally have severe headaches with tremors in my left arm and hand. This has been for a few years now and seemed to be getting worse especially when I stressed. Any suggestions.
Im cathy, I have had the same thing but on my right side for over 4.5 years. I have severe headaches also and arm/shoulder pain, can't sleep. When they get so bad, I lay down, if i'm sitting watching tv, I put a pillow behind my neck any time I can. I also sit with my head on my hand if I'm out eating. I pivit my arm on any table or dresser to put on makeup and to eat. When I write, I use my other hands thumb and put it agains the tremor hand and it helps. I've had PT, OT and see a Neurologist,, just trying different meds. You may need an antidepressant. I wear my soft collar when driving, or riding in a car because the tremors get worse with bumps..or I will use my headrest and push my head against it. I try to sit up streight all the time. Massages do help with the spasms, and to relax the muscles(even for a little while). Hope some of this helps anyone.
I have a shaky head and hands look up essential tremors on internet it will give you ideals of what you can do to ease them but they are not curable, when you have looked have a word with your doctor. I have tried Primedone but do not like the side affects so I have stopped taking it. I am thinking of having botox which can help
At work last year sitting talking feeling fine all of a sudden I felt faint said I didn't feel well and that's all I remember until waking and being told I'd passed out, shaking my eyes were fully dilated black and just starring.. This has happened a few time after so got checked out and had loads of test to be told I had vasovagal syncope, I have not had an episode for 6 months and at the weekend I was fine until all of a sudden I felt faint I belt over and that's all I remember until waking with my other half saying I'm calling 999, again my eyes were just staring, black and I was shaking, very scary for me and especially for my partner, I have not had the tilt table testing yet, as all my test came back perfectly fine. I do have a check up in about 4 months time, it's just very scary and apart from seconds notice it will happen I am felling fine beforehand. I have noticed that I am on my period or due on when these happen do you think it could have anything to do with menopause. I am 40? I have always not been able to stand for a long period or if to hot I am unwell also, would love to get to the bottom of this. Never know when it's going to happen.. Would love to hear from you with any comments, thanks.

I am 17 and have been diagnosed with CP from all the doctors that i've seen. Yeah my right side does tend to be bit tighter than my left, but my main issue is that i am always shaking or have "Tremors". It mainly acts up when im nervous, excited etc. I've seen a rehab medicene doc and i am currently taking clonazepam to help calm me down when i start to shake. Does anyone else have this problem? If so what've you done to treat it?
i am 16 and i have Cerebral Palsy and i have problems with both legs and all muscles but erm, i have all of the same issues as you and i always get tremours but i do all sorts of therapy to treat mine and take medications, i do physio therapy but also Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and speech therapy and my CBT really helps me withb my tremours and actions :)
5 weeks ago I was put on oramorph for a painful leg, 2 weeks later I was put on MST 80mg a day. Occassionally i have forgot to take the evening tablet and I will wake in the night or in the morning dripping with sweat, shaking and sever axiety. Is this normal or have a now become dependant on the drug for more than just pain?
