My tremors occur whenever I change my meds. I discussed it with my doc at one point and although it was noted, it was not a concern since they always seemed to disappear two to three days into the change. I don'[t know if you change your meds a lot but just wanted to toss that out there.

Hi hippi, I was wondering how long you would be running around like a crazy woman before you started having problems! I know you want to be there for your kids but you got to be there for yourself first. I'm like Lynnwood. If I don't eat or am extremely exhausted I shake like crazy. When I was in the hospital and the nurses would help me shower by the time they got me to bed my hands were shaking like crazy. Then when I was coming home from the hospital I got into the house and I was again shaking uncontrolably. You really need to keep in mind that even when we feel well we are in a constant battle with our body. That's how come we go down hill so quickly. Any little thing that tips the scales against us will have a negative effect. Even if we think we can skip lunch or a nap or maybe just one more thing we can get done. Unfortunately our bodies don't work that way. It's not fair it stinks. It's a rotten deal and ........it's the way it is.This isn't just my opinion it's what my doctor told me.
Other than that I do have times when my meds get switched usually it's between vicodin or percocet that I get tremmers but they occure all over my body and not so much as shakes. Those would be like jumpy legs or muscles in my ribs and stuff would jump. The doctor did a CT scan and it was normal so there wasn't a problem there. I don't know if inflmation would show up in a scan or not.
Anyway I just thought I would jump on here and nag ya a little bit. LOL. I hope you get some rest and get a decent meal in ya. If that doesn't help than you need to see your doctor.
