My grandmother is 88yrs old. She has been complaining of lightheadedness, nervousness and shaking. She went to the hospital and they said she was ok.

Not okay: From your description, it doesn't sound like your grandmother is okay. At the very least, she's very anxious. If the er doctors examined discharged her, they must have given suggestions for follow-up care. Were medications prescribed? You could call her physician and ask for help. Also, er doctors (like any of us) can be wrong. If you're concerned, return to er for a recheck.

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.

My hands won't stop shaking, it had started happening about a week ago after exercising for the first time in months, and my diet has also been bad.

My hands won't stop shaking, it had started happening about a week ago after exercising for the first time in months, and my diet has also been bad.

See your doctor: I would recommend you see your doctor regarding new onset hand tremors/shaking. Exercise itself should not be a cause of this. You should ask to get some lab work, and should also avoid taking any over the counter stimulants: energy drinks, caffeinated drinks, coffee, and also any decongestants or products containing pseudo ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate).

Will my hands stop shaking if I stop masturbating?

Will my hands stop shaking if I stop masturbating?

No: The most common cause of a tremor is familial tremor; if this is you, your physician can help you with medication, for example propranolol. If you have Parkinson's or some other cause of tremor, this needs to be addressed. Enjoying your body isn't the cause and I'm sorry that someone told you something like this -- life's hard enough without superstition. Best wishes.

How do I stop my hand from shaking? I think that its called pasma.

Tremor: Involuntary hand shaking while in use is often due to essential tremor which tends to run in families. Resting tremor is seen in Parkinson's disease. I recommend a consultation with a neurologist for diagnosis and treatment.

Tremor: Involuntary tremors can be caused by an overactive thyroid, certain medications, nicotine or other substances or by neurological disorder. One form of the latter is essential tremor that runs in the family. A neurologist is best qualified to evaluate, advise and treat you after nonneurological causes have been ruled out.

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.

Could I have trapped a nerve boxing? My left hand won't stop shaking

Could I have trapped a nerve boxing? My left hand won't stop shaking

I'd like to see it: Trapping nerves doesn't result in limbs "shaking." If you've pain you may've broken something. Fine tremulousness based on this is a possibility. Something a bit less good to have may be a simple partial seizure following a good whack the head. If you'd like to connect with me by webcam & show me what's going on that'd be best. Or go to an ER.
