This morning I had tremors something terrible. My whole body vibrated. My left arm kept shaking violently like palsy. I had to hold it close in a hug to calm it.
I couldn't hold anything without vibrating and shaking. It lasted about 3 hours. mad
Have any of you had this?
 
It scares me. I'm trying to figure out if I need to see a nuerologist. My blood sugar was normal and I wasn't nervious. I just vibrated. nono

Has this happened before? Are you on prednisone?

no, I'm not on prednisone.
I've had mild shakes before, but they've never lasted that long.
No new medicines either.

I have been more active lately. Could it be fatigue shakes?
However it was first thing in the morning and I had been awake 30 minutes.

I get that way when i first wake up or when I am exhuasted. It is a scary thing. i would mention it to your rhuemy and see if she thinks you should see a neurologist.

Hi Joy. While in the ER and ICU with pneumonia and then sepsis I developed what's called "shaking rigors." My whole body shook uncontrably for a couple of hours. This doesn't sound like what you experienced, but I thought I'd throw it out there. Love, Butterflake

My body just vibrated. I felt like I had drank 20 red bulls.

It was a crazy feeling. It scared me as well.

I've felt it before but only lasted about thirty minutes for me.

I'll see the rheumy next month and tell him about it.
