Many possibilities: Tremors can be neurological, hormonal, or anxiety driven. A full assessment with a primary care physician is needed. The doctor needs to evaluate the type of tremor, when it happens, what parts of the body are affected, and if there are any other symptoms of movement disorders.

Multiple causes: Feeling of cold, anxiety, fear, drug side effects, alcohol withdrawal, certain addicting drug withdrawal, increased thyroid level and some diseases of nervous system. Need to see a neurologist.

A 33-year-old member asked:

What changes can I expect in my body in the second trimester?

2 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Kristina McCaughtry
Obstetrics and Gynecology 21 years experience
Quite a few: In the second trimester, the baby continues to grow, making room for itself by pushing your organs out of the way. So your abdomen will enlarge, and towards the third trimester other problems like hemorrhoids, heartburn and back pain may result. "what to expect when expecting" is one of many good prenatal education books to consider reading for more information.

What causes core body tremor?

Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Muscle activity: Muscle contractions and relaxations, on a very small scale, can feel like vibrations and tremors. Nerves, nerve signals, neurotransmitter chemicals, adrenalin, hormones, medications, etc... May plan a role in making muscles go into tremors or vibrations.

Can there be a problem in the neck that can be causing body tremors?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Bennett Machanic
Neurology 52 years experience
Unlikely: Tremors can be secondary to genetics, medication side effects, alcohol/nutritional issues, parkinson's disease and other movement disorders, hyperthyroidism, etc. The neck may be involved secondarily in some of these condiitions but does not cause any of them.

Low d2 & D3 vitamin counts. Can this br causing my lightheadedness and body tremors?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Nadeem Shabbir
Neurology 37 years experience
Not these symptoms: Low vitamin d levels do not cause these symtoms, unless there is associated abnormality in serum calcium.Lightheadedness and fatigue could be the result of celexa. Tremors need to be explored more ie the duration and type of tremors.
