Anything else happen: Are there any other symptoms that occur during this shivering of the arm? Either before or after the shaking. Does it have a warning associated with it? In other words, can you feel it ready to come on? Do you have any changes to your mental status while this happens? Dizziness, tiredness, sleepiness? When do these tend to happen and how many times a day or week do they occur. See Neurologist

Keratosis pilaris: This is a sign you are irritating or over drying your skin. You may need a prescription but most of my pts with this do better if they use gentler products when bathing and a good moisturizer.
