Hi all -
For those of you who get tremors, do you notice if they come back at any specific time?  I don't know if this makes sense, but I notice my tremors are worse in the morning right after I get into work, they are not the violent ones that I get every so often, but the ones that seem like the caffeine jitters.  I don't drink caffeine at all in the morning anymore since I was thinking that had something to do with it and I've been off the Topamax now for almost 3 weeks and it never fails after about 2 hours of being awake, the tremors start and will continue for about 2 hours and then go away.  I also get them when I am overly tired, which I haven't been sleeping well for the last month.  Just thought if anyone else has been able to avert these wonderful symptoms.  Thanks

I get my tremors the worst when I get woken up or have to set an alarm. So basically, my tremors are bad when I get up before my body is ready to be awake. I also suffer from them when I get tired. If I rest with my legs up or take a nap they will sometimes vanish. I know that it is difficult to rest when you are working.

I hope you can find something that works for you.

Hey Denda

Same here on the being tired. I have only found that i've had this prob a few times and...oddly enuf...only in my right arm so far. Like Lysha, when i rest it gets much better. I don't work, so can rest anytime i need to so wonder how things would be if, like u, i stayed up and going all the time. I drink TONS of coke and get plenty of caffiene, so don't think it has anything to do with that for me, but i do believe everyone's triggers are different for these odd symptoms. Just wondering...could u be anticipating stress for the upcoming day when this begins for u?? Could that be a trigger for u? Many things can play into how u'r feeling...and can dictate how u then feel physically. Tho not painful, very frustrating. For me, the feeling is that of weakness and heaviness along with the in the weakness and heaviness u get with the fatigue, so even if it's not painful it's also very difficult. I hope this eases up for u soon. Please let us know how u'r doing with it.

Thanks to you both! It may be the stress of just coming into work at first and things hitting me right away that need to be dealt with, because I don't seem to get them as much on the weekends, however if I overdue it AND if I would get woke up in the middle of the night, I will get them and just try to go back to sleep and ignore that my brain feels like it's shaking inside my skull.

I guess I just paid more attention to the morning ones since I'm awake the whole time and didn't notice the stress level my job has on me when I didn't think it's stressful just coming into work. I do have high tension days at work and my tremors do come and stay for a while.... Wow, maybe I need a new job?? Interesting...

Yes, Rhonda I know exactly what you are saying about the weak and heavy feeling, on someday's it's worse especially if the tremors are around because my body seems to tense up horribly when they happen and once their done, it's like someone just unplugged the drain and I have noodles for arms and legs.  I've been off the caffeine completely for about 2 weeks, I'm going to give it one more  week and if the tremors haven't subsided, I'm definately going back to it! :o)

Thanks Lysha, I will try the legs up thing at work. I really want to wait until my 2nd opinion before I ask for main level office (right now I walk up and down 20 corragated (sp?) metal stairs at least 20 times a day to get to my office (2nd floor)) and it is wearing me down, not all the time but on bad days especially. If my office was moved to the first floor I think that would help as well.

Thanks again to you both.
