Once I got on progesterone and got my levels up, the internal shaking and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tremor</span>s completely stopped.

I have no more issues with the internal tremors though now that I am doing HRT.
You had partial removal of left thyroid lobe 7 years back, most likely also resecting one of the 4 parathyroid glands along with causing altered calcium metabolism. you are taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>thyroid</span> supplements and a possible hypocalcaemia leading to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tremor</span>s in hands, head and neck.

I have been chewing a lot of gum! For the past 2 weeks I have also been having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tremor</span>s in my left hand, arm and my left leg feels tight.

I am 23 years old and I have had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tremor</span>s for about 4 years now. It initially started at my stomach but now occurs at my neck muscles and seems like it will keep spreading. Could this be indications of Parkinson's disease?

I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tremor</span>s in my arms, legs and head which have moved rapidly in the last 12 months, and has my loss of muscle strength. I find very difficult to do most things as the tremors are so severe, also very difficult to walk, I am getting cramps in my feet and back. I have had many tests and an MRI that showed I have iron deposits in the cerabellum. My Neurologist has dismissed this as of no importance. When I lay down and totally relax, most of the tremors dissappear.
Other causes of tremor include thyroid disorders and some neurologic disorders such as essential tremor (which would more likely involve the arms and face before the legs) and parkinson's disease (but with several associated symptoms). If it is not quite a tremor but rather muscle twitching, there are several potential causes, with one of the more common ones being benign fasiculation syndrome, or twitching that results from caffiene, anxiety, and excessive exercise.

I have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tremor</span>s constantly. Mine started off as resting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tremor</span>s in my head, torso and legs.

They seem to drain all my energy as I'm fighting gravity. The thing that worries me they are becoming more intentional. My left hand is starting to shake more and more often. I was recently in a automobile accident last week.

I am a 22 year old female and experiencing resting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tremor</span>s. They began in my left hand very mild and in the past two days have escalated to very noticeable and now a slight tremor in my right hand. They are primarily present when at rest or by my sides, but now have also begun to show when I try to write, or do such things as type or hold a cup (mildly). From what I've read they are a major sympptom of parkinsons, but is there any other reason that I could have these???

I believe I am slightly hypothyroid and awaiting further investigations with an Endocrinologist. People here have already explained to me that symptoms of hyper and hypo can often be mixed together. But I would just like to know if anyone has experienced a sort of electric tremor feeling that throbs through your body but is particularly felt in the thighs and shoulders/arms. I'm wondering what triggers this, it is worst in the early evening.
I too suffer from inner <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tremor</span>s. They are most noticeable when I awake from sleep in the mornings and also any time I awake during the night. The condition is best described as a vibration over my entire body but is not visable and cannot be felt externally. It goes away when I become active and is only noticeable when I am at rest. I first experienced it years ago and then it disappeared.
