Yes, I get shaky at times and I hate it. It feels like a blood-sugar thing, like I need something to eat right now, but eating doesn't really completely make it stop. If I hold up my hands, I can see them shake a little, but what I feel is kind of an all-over weakness at the same time, lasting about 10 or 15 minutes. It usually hits in the late morning, (not always) and doesn't neccessarily have to do with what I'm doing, feeling, etc. I agree, it's scary, you wonder if something is seriously wrong. I can go a week without it, or it might come every day for a week. I don't think it ever correlated to my periods....now that I'm postmenopausal, I sometimes think it comes before a hot flash, but not often. I've probably had this for at least 10 years and it's not getting any worse...
