For years and years I've often got the 'shakes'. I guess I've just kind of got used to it cos I never really thought a lot of it and it wasn't so much of an inconvenience. But now I'm starting to realise its anxiety and I've been told its like a mini panic attack. I've just been diagnosed with anxiety (had depression diagnosed years ago), and am currently signed off work for 2 weeks.
 
When I get this shaky feeling I quite often shake all over, I feel lightheaded and nauseous. Is this a panic attack?
 
In general alot of the time I find it hard to sit still, I need to be doing something, and in general feel like I have 'butterflies' in my stomach. Argh its just horrible!

Sounds like anxiety/panic attack to me...
Mine always cause me to be shaky and "out of sorts".  I get the "busy feeling" or fight/flight feelings as well with nausea and have to get up and leave the room or move around.  Glad you have a dx now...and yes they can be very frightening at times.  You will find there are many people here that experience the same thing and can offer a wealth of support!!  :-)

Most of my immediate family, including myself, goes through the shakes from time to time. Only a few of us actually have severe anxiety, but one of the symptoms is shaking. Check with your doc about medication levels for your a/p, and maybe he/she can experiment doses or change your med until you feel balanced out.

The best of luck :)

Thankyou for your replies...I go back to my GP in a couple of weeks to see how I'm getting on, I have also been referred to a therapist which I should be seeing in the next couple of months. :-)

I just recently (as of April) have been a bit shaky...sometimes in general, sometimes just when I move (like muscle fatigue, but it's not, I don't think???). No one knows why. Yes it's frustrating. Yours could be panic, but seems like almost anything "off" could be called panic, which frustrates me and seems like an easy way out for doctors.
PM me if you feel like talking, or feel scared. I often do :(
