Hi everyone, Last night I was watching american idol and I started to feel really weird, It felt like my whole body was shaking on the inside, it wasnt visible from the outside though, I tried to just sit there and let it pass, but I really couldnt I felt like I had to stand up and walk it off or something. Does anyone know what this is??? Thank you so much, it kinda freaked me out. I guess it was a weird jump outta my skin feeling!!!

I laughed so hard watching that show..but anyway..I have a friend this happens to. She said she can be laying in bed and start shaking out of nowhere, she feels it inside first and said that the whole bed shakes....but I think she just 'thinks' the bed is shaking. So're not alone.

Hello Angela

I do get the shakes all the time. Sometimes there just on the inside and sometimes there inside and outside. It does seem like it takes forever for them to stop and they just kinda come and go there is nothing that sets them off. Dr said it a part of my anxiety and the meds I am on seem to help some I don't have them as often as I have in the past. Hope this helps hun keep us posted on how your doing.

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

many possibilities including hypoglycemia, that is low blood sugar, try drinking some soft drink WITH SUGAR IN IT

and see if this stops it

I get the shaky feeling(that is exactly how I describe it) and it feels miserable like your stomach and throat are shaky. I feel cold when it isn;t then I know it is anxiety. The worst I have shaked was one night in bed and I just trembled violently until it passed. My husband just held me until it stopped. Horrid.

I have done this to and i find that if i eat a bit of sugar then it passes. It is a horrible feeling. I know people that are going through anxiety tend not to eat right. give it a try. Barb

I'm to get this and most of the time deep breathing helps along with some food.  At its worse I tend to get dizzy then I usually have to take a Xanax and rest for a few awhile till it passes.

I get this sometimes when I don't have enough sugar in me...and sometimes for absolutely no reason...

it's such a strange feeling, but know that you're NOT alone! :)

I get that too and for me it's completely tied in with my blood sugar levels.  As soon as I can get something in my stomach the shakes go away, so does the anxiety.  Crazy eh.....
I hope this helps!
