You are doing quite a bit - no wonder you are tuckered out!
Have you started any new meds?
How is your blood sugar?
Those are few things that I have experienced as causing that trembling.
Please try to get yourself to slow down a bit - if you don't already take some breaks.
Or, at least, some deep breaths!
I have had the vibration-thing. Went running to the ER because I vibrated a vase off a night stand! They ran every test known to man and told me it was anxiety. It's a horrible feeling but it will pass.
Thank you everyone for your words of advice, and support. I know I am in overload, but I am a special education teacher in high school and in addition to my teaching I have to prepare for meetings that are quite involved about my studnets that I am responsible for, I run the meetings, so it is hard not to be prepared. This position has a lot of paperwork, it is quite ridiculous. I also have a portfolio that is due by May and it is a teaching portfolio that requires a lot of work(100 pages), so I am literally working everyday till 9:00, and all day Saturday at the library. I am type A personality so this fibro thing is quite difficult. I think a lot of us are type A personality.
I dont eat much, and I do snack on pretzels, so I wouldnt doubt it may be low sugar or something. I eat less since I was forced to stop running everyday.
I also find that I have more difficulty sleeping, more than usual and I have had a rapid heart beat. It is probably all that is on my mind.
Thanks again everyone for the advice. I will slow down in May.
Meanwhile I have to fit in some more testing. My new dr, wants me to go for a mri for chiari malformation syndrome, something with the cerebellum part of my brain being malformed, may be a lot of my symptoms. Not a good thing to have, anyway, thanks again.
Thanks again everyone for the great words of advice, I will definitely listen to them and try to apply them to my life.
Chutz, I am sorry you had to give up teaching, but I can see how it can knock you down. I have great kids, and we are a very close family. We still, despite our busy schedules, eat dinner every night together and we talk about our days. They also help me with my school work and understand the importance of this project and have been supportive. I also coach their basketball team so I spend time with them doing this. They are aware of my medical problems and are always concerned offering a back rub, my oldest says he will find a cure. Thanks everyone again, I am so glad I joined this forum, you guys are the best medicine!

I am stressed and I probably am anxious. I do have xanax because I do get panic attacks occassionally, but I have been able to work through them without pills. I looked at my script bottle of them and it expires 2/09, and it is full, so maybe I will take one before bed. I could never take during the day they make me sleepy, even only 1/2 the dosage.
Thanks for the advice
