Anxiety: A chronic anxiety state is likely but a checkup with your Physician is needed to rule out thyroid disease,anemia,etc. Your physician may refer you for stress management therapy and possibly prescribe a mild tranquilizer for a limited period as well. ...Read more

See a physician: You should consult a physician. Who can examine you and run some lab test to rule out other causes of weakness and tremors like anemia hyperthyroidism and medications.I guess that you may be suffering from dehydration, hypokalemia or hypoglycemia which is causing your symptoms. In the meantime you cut back on all caffeine nicotine and alcohol intake. See your internist for work up asap. ...Read more

How do I tell the difference between shakiness in legs and shakiness in neuropathy.

May not be very easy: It sounds like your question is asking the difference between shakiness in the legs due to weakness of the muscles (such as after heavy exercise?) vs. weakness in the legs due to lack of neuronal control or innervation? Your best bet is to get a neurological examination since other things needs to be noted physically and by history before arriving at that sort of conclusion. ...Read more
