Please ask them to test your ADRENALS.....the shaking is usually associated with ADRENAL Issues....I have this symptom too....it is the worst symptom....I really hate when I get the shakes and tremors......

I am sorry you are feeling so unwell. I am sure it will get better. Are you getting enough electrolytes and salt? I have noticed people on here find out some of their vitamins and electrolytes are low. I would see if you can have them tested and maybe supplement.

The smallest things can throw us out of whack. I hope you feel better soon.

I have tremors as well also. I tested and was found to have adrenergic issues. 

What kind of test did they do? I did a 24 hour urine test/blood work and a CT scan on my adrenal glands. I don't know any of the results yet though. My hands tremble. Especially when I'm exposed to heat. Sometimes just for no reason. They actually have shaken my whole life it's just gotten worse. Or maybe that's marriage? Jk

The shakes can be from elevated norepinephrine levels which can cause tremors, anxiety, tachycardia, hypertension, cold hands and feet, seizures …. this is hyperadrenergic POTS. The levels are checked in a blood test lying down and then being upright for 30 minutes. They say anything over 600 is elevated.

@Pistol:  Thanks for that info.  I've had tremors over the years but have a family history of Parkinson's, so I always blamed it on that and figured I'd deal with it later.  Now I have something possibly less sinister to blame it on.

Dear @Mrs r - you mention that you are not taking any of the meds they have offered you so far for fear of getting worse: in my experience we cannot find what helps if we do not take the medications that are recommended by the doctors. I too was always scared to try a new medication but had I not done that then I would not be controlled today. Yes - some meds were flops and I had to stop them but others were godsent and greatly improved my symptoms. Unfortunately it is trial-and-error since no one person responds the same to meds and most of us are very sensitive to medications. However - nothing changes  if we do not MAKE changes. Be brave - and work with your doctors to find the treatment that is right for you.
