For Those who get the "shakes"

Postby Barb916 on April 20th, 2005, 5:15 pm

Hi all,

I've posted about this topic before...the shakiness or muscle/nerve quivering I feel right when I wake up in the morning. For those of you that feel this sensation, do you ever feel it during the day?

In the past few days, I've had the quivering feeling in my arms and legs through-out the day too. I'm trying to "ignore" it but I'm wondering why it happens all day long now. I don't feel weak, just this annoying quivering feeling.

No matter what I'm doing, walking, sitting, watching TV, working...I feel it. I don't have a nervous feeling in my stomach nor do I feel anxious. I just have this quivering feeling in my extremities.

Any one else have this going on? Looking for support.

Thanks,
Barb

Barb,

I have felt this at times, in my legs and once in my arms.

I can't say that I get this often, but it has happened. When it happened, as a matter of fact, I remember becoming concerned about MS (which was years ago).

As I sit here typing my arm just shuttered for 3 seconds. I get his off and on. Like shaking, vibrating, it last for just a moment but is really a strange thing as it is my whole arm. It is like shivering only one spot and without a reason just random.

I have the quivering feeling in jaw (shivering like feeling) when I wake up in the morning and sometimes just as I fall asleep. It came on w/ the twitching ~1 1/2 years ago. I have explained it to the neurologist as a symptom (he shrugged and rolled his eyes) and have done many web searches on the sesation. During the day, I have the same feeling in one or both arms. It has stayed for days and then passed only to come back again.

the quivers or vibrations

I don't know about the quivers. I get the vibrations sometimes. It is a feeling like I have my cell phone on vibration mode in my pocket. A quick buzz/vibration then it stops.

I have what feels like a motor running/tremor/fluttering in the lower half of my body. It is primarily in my left leg yet I have other symptoms (such as tingling, vibrations and pins and needles) in my right leg. It has gotten worse over the last couple of months and increases throughout the day.

Vibrations for me. Not sure if that can be classifed as quivering/shakiness.

Dee Dee

I guess I should have looked at this thread before sending you a PM. :oops: Sorry about that. You don't have to respond to the PM is you don't want since you answered here already.

Thanks,
Barb
