Internal tremors

Posted by mj953 @mj953, Apr 1 7:03am

I have had internal tremors for the last five months. My doctors are perplexed. I have had heart tests bloodwork all normal. I am scheduled for a brain MRI very soon. The first serologist that I went to said I had anxiety. My general practitioner doctor says now this is not anxiety you have a medical problem That’s why am scheduled for an MRI and a new neurologist.I also might add That I fell last July and really hurt my hip and back. As soon as I went to physical therapy the tremors started. Maybe I have a pinched nerve?

Hello from Ontario. I am 77, have a laundry list of medical issues but your mention of internal tremors caught my eye as I also have had internal tremors for around the same time frame. Previous to that one of my medical conditions is peripheral neuropathy from 2016 after taking a Quinolone drug for UTI… sort of from knees down and elbows down but did not go on medication as I could put up with the tingling and had other issues going on; but few months ago tingling went to pain and pain to numbness and sort of all over; and legs like walking n sticks: and then would wake up to spine tingling… then here and there and across back and shoulders on and off and when on was not painful in that sense but like someone shaking me from head to toe but not visible on outside!
I tried my own investigation and wondered what I had done, medications consumed etc. and the only correlation I found was visits to dentist! I searched and searched and although not exact, did seem the tremors were around the time of 6 dental treatments since last August and use of numbing agents… which include epinerpherine, and two others… Also there is a moderate drug interaction with Clonazepam and Lidocaine. However, ho one had my back,

I dont have a family doctor… dentist figured I had Essential Tremor as did his ex wife but did not say gum numbing agents were the cause. I had seen a neurologist years ago and he did a very brief teleconference with me 2 weeks ago and thought yes, Essential Tremor/Tremour. I spend a lot of time in or on bed and it is worse after moving around. I also fell in my kitchen last September onto my left side, tripped over bottom drawer of open dishwasher….just one stitch in hand and rib xrays but could have done something inside. Thing is they gave me needle of Lidocaine and Epinepherine and I got home from hospital 4am,slept til 6am and woke up shaking from head to toe for half hour. Then put it aside at the time. I just thought I would mention it because sometimes its a cause not obvious… and the neurologist "didnt think" has anything to do with dental freezing agents.. but …..???? Right now have strep throat on tope of everything else and am trying to decide whether or not to the antibiotic as dont agree with me and had C.diff a couple of yerars ago… seems one thing after another.

Hope you post results of your tests am quite interested as I have the internal tremors every day in one place or another plus the PN and some other good stuff!!! ….best of luck, J.

I'm curious to discover why you posted your question in the Digestive Health group. Your health care team has investigated possible heart issues and neurological issues. Do you think that there may be a gastrointestinal connection or would you like me to move your discussion to the Brain & Nervous System group?

I’m also experiencing internal shaking or maybe it’s best described as my body feels like jello and my coffee cup shakes when I hold it as I see tremors in my hand/fingers. This does not happen all the time. I keep wondering if miralax could cause the shaking? I have an appt with my GI Dr this week (teleheath visit only), cardiologist next week, and neurologist the following week. I worry about Parkinson’s or something worse.

@judy75, I'm glad that you are seeing the gamut of specialists. Did you learn anything from the GI doctor or cardiologist? I assume you haven't seen the neurologist yet.
