Can shudders develop into tremors? If a infant (10months) gets shudders is there another prob causing the shudders?

Can shudders develop into tremors? If a infant (10months) gets shudders is there another prob causing the shudders?

Possibly.: Newborns have an instinctive startle reflex which might look like"shudders," but it's absent in normal 10 month olds. If these "shudders" occurs only occasionally & briefly, contact your child's pediatrician for an acute care appointment. If it's worse than that, seek immediate medical care. I can't predict what the behavior you describe might evolve into. ...Read more

Depends on the cause: Tremors may be due to many things such as metabolic or neurological causes. Sometimes they are familial in nature, e.g., essential tremors. Head tremors and shuddering spells occur intermittently, and are usually benign. They require no treatment and improve with age.

Somatic Symptoms: The brain is a fascinating organ capable of self-awareness, spirituality, imagination, and the ability to learn. It is so powerful that it can take an emotional state and create real somatic or physical sensations. The butterflies in your stomach or tremor in your hand when anxious, heavy sluggish muscles when depressed are a few examples. But that same brain can be used in therapy to get better. ...Read more

Sister just diagnosed with MS at 27 years old . Is she going to die early? Can she live a normal life? Any supplaments help her? Why does she tremor

Needs DMT: Typically, with appropriate disease modifying therapy, a normal lifespan is likely if one has relapsing-remitting ms. Some supplements are truly mandatory, such as vitamin d-3, 5, 000- 10, 000 units daily, but low fat, low salt diet also of value. Our local group recommends starting with potent medication, either tysabri (natalizumab) or gilenya, for first 5 yrs, depending on anti-jcv titers. (see below). ...Read more

Took alinia 2x day for 7 days and zegerid for 5 days. Developed a mild body tremor Off alinia 5 days and zegerid 3 still tremor. Coincidence or normal?

Difficult to say: well, first, there's the underlying condition. Nausea/vomiting from gastrointestinal conditions WILL produce tremor (can be from serious electrolyte/salt imbalance requiring treatment).
Although tremor is NEVER mentioned under side effects of nitazoxanide, since it acts on nerves of germ/parasite....there's a small theoretical possibility. ...Read more

Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy (talk therapy) has proven effectiveness for anxiety, addresses its cause(s) and not just the symptoms, and will improve quality of life generally, beyond just anxiety symptoms. And yet the first things many people talk about is medication. I fear the pharmaceutical industry has sold a bill of goods to doctors and patients both. Sometimes talk is the best medicine. ...Read more

Hard to predict: While the FDA clarifies how fast a medication can have its dose increased, there are no universal guidelines on the "waiting period" to see if a person will adapt to a medicine or if side effects will persist. If a person feels symptoms are getting worse rather than better, it is important to alert the prescribing physician immediately to make appropriate changes. ...Read more

Some considerations: Some folks suffer from heredofamilial tremors, or essential tremors, others may experience thyroid problems, anemias can seemingly cause tremors on occasion, and anxiety can cause tremors, amongst a number of problems. In my experience, it is very rare to experience tremor control with celexa (citalopram). If this remains a substantial problem, might try to see a neurologist. ...Read more

Does an electrolyte test,test for calcium?I had an electrolyte test n it was normal.Been experiencing tremors lately & friend said might b low calcium

No: Standard electrolyte panel includes sodium, potassium, bicarbonate, (sodium bicarbonate) and chloride. You need to specifically request calcium. Should also check magnesium since low Mg can cause symptoms and is relatively common. If there is any suggestion of low calcium, the ionized calcium should be measured. If Mg is borderline, a trial of Mg replacement is safe and warranted. ...Read more

Hand tremor for three days after my first time lifting/pushing heavy weights - is this normal?

Overall pattern...: cannot say in your particular case, but generally, you would look at the overall pattern. Loss of sensation/strength, getting worse over time, with a LOT of pain or deformity, those would be bad. Being associated wiht normal pain and lasting a brief time and associated WITH DOING BETTER WITH LIFTING over a 2 week period is entirely normal. Nerves and muscles improve in 2 week (tone) often w shakes ...Read more
