I was wondering when you feel jittery, are you visibly shaky on the inside? or do you just feel shaky on the inside? would you describe it as the way you feel when you dont eat for a while?? I hate the feeling!!!! Does anyone else feel kinda weak when you feel jittery?

I would say it isn't really visible for me. It's definately the way I feel when I don't eat for a while only slightly different. I don't like the feeling either.

I feel weak as well when I'm jittery, like I just need to lay down for a while.

For me it was only visible in full panic mode.  The rest of the time it just felt like all of my insides and head was vibrating.
The mind is like a parachute - It works better when it's open.

that is how i describe the jittery feeling. it feels like i haven't eaten in awhile or like i just finished lifting weights and the lactic acid in makes my body shakey. That's why i don't lift weights anymore.

this is JMO, but i think the jittery feeling comes from muscles tensing and then relaxing and then tensing again. i think it does release lactic acid in your system. and then when you don't eat enough, i think it makes it worse.

Yes I get this same way - I visibly shake when my anxiety is at a higher level. At other times I just feel like my insides are jerking and it is alot similar to lack of eating or like your blood sugar level is off or something. I take medication for this (PD) and it helps. There are alot of different things that can help. Talk to your doctor and see if they can help you. In the meantime keep posting to let us know how you are! I wish you well, will be thinking about ya. God bless you...

For me it's like the blood sugar thing but I can feel it on the inside and out. I hate it!

I get both, I get the jitters inside at times and shakes on the outside. Dr still trying to treat me for them with meds and have helped some when I'm calm but once I start getting upset or nervus about something it all comes back. There are times I can't type or even hold a glass to drink. Part of mine is fibro too because of the pain and fog I go thru I really get anxiety from it. I hope your feeling better soon and remember your not going thru this alone. 

I have an illness, My illness don't have me.
