See Doctor!: Shaking uncontrollably upon awakening is not normal. If you have a history of anemia, then you definitely need to call your doctor, and see what else might be going on. This could be a number of things, depending on the source. S/he may need to check your blood pressure, and fasting blood sugar levels to give you a better idea what's going on. Don't delay!
