Does my hand shaking have anything to do with my nervous system?

Does my hand shaking have anything to do with my nervous system?

Probably: Shaking of hands is pretty much the result of the activity of muscles. There could possibly be a muscular imbalance, but most likely it is the activity of the nerves that supply those muscles that is responsible for the shaking. The shaking might be seen to disappear when you deeply relax. If so, it probably partly due to stress and anxiety. See an appropriate health professional soon. ...Read more

What to do if i often wake up with my hand and arm totally numb. Do I have poor circulation?

Carpal T Syndrome is: More likely your dx, as its a very common problem. Use a wrist brace throughout the day and night would help considerably in improving your symptoms. Its recommended for night time mostly, but i advise it through the day as well, as one can do most activities with it, except some. If not improving consult your pcp or an orthopod. ...Read more

Talk to your Dr: Essential tremors can sometimes be improved with medication--your dr or a neurologist should be able to help determine what may most likely help you in your situation. In the mean time, try bracing / resting your hand on something--the patient, the counter, etc, to see if that helps reduce the tremor. ...Read more

When i run my arms n legs turns numb and heavy which makes breathing even harder. What cause that? Poor circulation? What do I need to do? Call my pcp

Yes to see your PCP: But most likely you are just a normal person, who has recently started to run/exercise. The symptoms you mentioned are normal in that scenario. Your circulation is normal. As you continue and develop stamina, all these symptoms would reduce considerably. Though do check with your pcp to ensure you are healthy and get some baseline labs. ...Read more

Why is my own immune system attacking my body? Did I do something to cause my diabetes?

Why is my own immune system attacking my body? Did I do something to cause my diabetes?

Unclear: If you're talking about type one diabetes, the one when your body makes no insulin, then what probably happened was your immune system was exposed to something (maybe a virus) that looked to it like the cells in your pancreas. It then started mistakenly treating those pancreatic cells like an illness it needed to get rid of. Type 2 is something else entirely. Bottom line: you didn't cause it. ...Read more

I am having a problem with my hands being so hot to the touch, and causing my body temp to go way up. I have dysautonomia, and heart problems.

I am having a problem with my hands being so hot to the touch, and causing my body temp to go way up. I have dysautonomia, and heart problems.

Please repost: Your post presents problems. Why should hot hands cause your temp to go up? Skin warmth is caused by dilation of skin capillaries allowing heat to be conducted from your body to the air. This should make your temp go DOWN, not up. What IS your actual body temp? You need to measure it with a thermometer in the AM, late afternoon, at bedtime, & when your hands get hot, daily for at least a week. ...Read more

Several causes exist, such as essential tremors, drug-induced, parkinson's, systemic disease, psychogenic (such as stress or lack of sleep), fatigue, too much coffee, low blood sugar, overactive thyroid. Worth getting evaluated to rule out medical causes. Most likely, yours is essential tremor & can be effectively treated. ...Read more

I take risperdal and my trunk and hands sometime shake. how do I know if it is a tremor or a siezure? Can tremor make you feel sick to your stomach?

Mental status: What typically distinguishes tremors induced by medication from a seizure induced as you describe is the fact that in many cases seizures cause people's mental status to become confused, blunted, even pass out. Tremors as side effects do not. Also, the way the tremor looks is different in risperdal induced tremor vs. a seizure which is usually a very rhythmic and symmetric appearing entity. ...Read more
