Variable: There are many causes but a very common cause of the symptoms you describe are anxiety and panic disorder or mediation/drug/alcohol effect. It would be important to learn of other symptoms, if any, as well as any medications you are taking. Please speak with your physician or make a virtual appointment with me for further guidance.

Can be normal: Quite a few folks have this especially when they're doing conditioning. It's a sign you're working hard and you should be proud. Since you're under a physician's care, if this does not resolve as you get more conditioned, discuss whether you might have familial tremor (treated with propranolol, perhaps), a channelopathy (get electrolytes checked) or get a neurology referral. Glad you're exercising Read more

Tremors in my hands uncontrollably for over a week with no cause. Light headed and dizzy, my whole body feels weak like jello and feeling faint. Help!

Go to the hospital: LuciL you sound seriously dehydrated or perhaps profoundly anemic. You may have been losing blood from an ovarian cyst or from something else (internal bleeding). This is a dangerous situation with probably very low blood pressure and you could die or pass out while driving for example, so please drink something salty right now and call 911 or have someone drive you to hospital.

Remember, no contact sports while you are in the active phase of the mono. Usually this lasts for 30 to 40 days. Good luck. Read more
