Shakes When Using Muscles

Recommended Posts


I just wanted to let you know that I get the same thing. Sometimes I can go periods without this happening and then wham it's back. I started getting them again about 1 1/2 months ago. I have tried doing strength training this week and I feel like jelly, but my shaking continued for at least 30 min after I stopped. It makes me feel horrible. I'm taking magnesium, but it hasn't been helping too much this time. I wish there was a cure b/c this is the worst POTs system I have, well at least it feels the worst to me. Good luck, and if you find anything that helps please let me know.

Hi Todd,

What type of dr should I go to for mitochondrial causes of POTs? What type of disorders should be looked for?

I started with my neuro, once he agreed we should look into this further (he was the same doctor that had never heard of POTS but agreed to find me someone to do a tilt table) he then refered me to a geneticist. The geneticist did her own testing then agreed a muscle biopsy would be the best way to confirm a mitochondrial diagnosis. Check out mitoaction.org this months webinar is on muscle biopsies and new diagnostic testing. Just let me add many mitochondrial specialists think dysautonomia is a symptom of mitochondrial dysfuction, it still all very new research. Good luck finding some answers and I hope you feel better soon.
