I've noticed in the last few months that my hands shaky uncontrollably
especially when I need to write, they shake when I type, when I'm just
sitting still and its worse when the hurt is worse.

Is anyone else experiencing shaky hands?

Well, I get a bit shaky when I'm hungry...but not like you describe, not that anyone else could see.

I'd sure get that checked out pronto.

I have the same issue with shaky hands and fingers. I was diagnosed with a familiar tremor because my sister and father also suffer from it. I was put on Propranolol (which is actually a blood pressure drug) to help control the tremors. It works perfect for me. Good luck with everything and get that checked.

My dh has this and was diagnosed with familial tremor, too. His main problem is also with his hands. He isn't receiving any treatment for it right now, but he is trying to cut back on caffeine.

Occasionally, and I do worry about it because I am an artist and I need to make money!

Why Fibro, if this continues, I sure would talk to my doctor about it.  I don't think this is common in fibro.  It's so easy to put any symptom under the fibro banner and it could be something else.
Apple, if you don't have that symptom, don't worry about it.  That causes stress and causes  you more pain.  Plus, the mind is very strong and can "take on" symptoms.  The only time my hands shake is if my blood sugar is low.  I grab a bite to eat and the shaking goes away.  So, don't worry about it.  You most likely will be just fine.

My father had shaky hands, so I guess it's a family thing. It is worse when I need to eat. My father found it very embarrassing.

I have been very shaky for a long time my doctor said in the beginning it was uncontrolled pain issue but even on my good days my hands shake. I think my doctor is getting tired of my complaints because he can't figure out what my problem is. He now says everything is connected to fibro.
Take care
