Anxiety Symptoms - Weird Shaking

#30

Postby jrhall22 » Wed Jan 21, 2009 7:26 pm

It's so nice to finally find other people like me. I'm 34 with 4 kids and hold a BA in Psychology, so when I was diagnosed with panic disorder in my 20's, I did A LOT of research on it and found that stress can do just about anything to your body. When you have panic disorder, you subconciously constantly monitor your own body. I can feel the internal shaking (especially when I'm trying to sleep) and my heart skips a lot. I also feel dizzy and have a hard time sleeping, sometimes afraid that I won't wake up simply because I feel so weird inside. Sometimes, my heart will start racing and I'll wake myself up gasping for air. There doesn't even have to be a reason why it happens (no specific stress trigger). It can be when I feel my life is perfectly stable. Most doctors can't properly diagnose it, because they're looking for physical signs and it comes and goes so spuractically. I have the same problem, that the shaking's not visible to others, but I can feel it inside. It feels like my blood is shaking within my veins and is very scary. With the shakiness, dizziness, adrenal rushes in my stomach and palpitations, it isn't a wonder some of us have become insomniacs. Does anyone else have the palpitations? The Dr gave me Topral (a beta blocker) to control them, but they're getting worse. All I can say is I think it roots by to our anxiety disorders. Once you have it, it sticks with you. Try relaxation techniques and reading before bedtime to calm yourself and get your mind off of it. And give yourself a 10 minute quiet time everyday to meditate. That helps. Also, EXERCISE. Aerobic activity for 30 mins 3x a week will help you to sleep and feel good inside.

They just keep sending me another doctor. They have said it could be anxiety. I recently started with i guess panic attacks.The shaking happens mostly at night when im almost asleep and im woken up suddenly. then i shake inside. it was mostly in my chest but now ifeel it sometimes in my calves and arms.My husband felt my arm onenight when it was real bad and he said he could feel it very faintly. but of course I felt it so strong.and then once im fully awake itgoes away. I just want to know im not alone because doctors seem to think im a little crazy!

Providence. I was just pacing around my workplace (a middle school) having a horrible panic attack complete with facial numbness and a couple sessions of intense shaking. And I come back to the forum and the this post is at the top of the list.

It's not over yet. But this is so helpful to hear from others.

Those of you who speak of facial numbness is like a pins and needles feelings? Is this common with anxiety and can it be in other areas of the body (legs, arms, hands and feet)? This is what I am going through. I have also had a few episodes over the last month where I shake for no reason. Like I am cold, but I'm not. My teeth even chatter if I let them. Was thinking this was MS, so I have been freaking for a month now. Everyday seems to get worse. I honeslty don't know how to cope if this is MS but know I am wondering if its my anxiety

Are these sensations common with anxiety?

I hate this feeling, if someone could shed some light on this, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!!


Dear Italiangirl40,
I am 39 years old and am also suffering the same symptoms. I am fine during the day but when I lay down to sleep I feel the insides shaking. I hate it and feel like if I were to fall asleep that I might not wake up again. For some reason it has gotten worse lately and I have been to the doctor and they never seem to know anything. I was given a EKG and a ECHO. Both came back fine. I have had anxiety problems since my early 20's and the meds they have given me do not seem to help in fact the first time I experienced the internal tremmors is when they put me on Zoloft. Now I lay there and I feel like I have bugs crawling on me and the internal shaking every time I start to fall asleep. I hate this and don't know what to do about it. I am tired of people acting like it's all in my head.
What should we do, what can we do?
By the way, I noticed someone posted about it being drinking withdrawl and I just want to add that I do not drink.

Hello, yes I have the palpatations too. My first one was in my early 20's and I called an ambulance out. I didn't know what in the world was happening and they gave me something in an IV that brought it back to normal.
