Can xanex help MS shaking ?

May be useful

Multiple_sclerosis
Some MS tremors involve cerebellar lesions, and probably would not be successfully treated with Xanax, but could be tried. Usually this medicine works a bit better in essential or positional tremors. Primidone and beta blockers might also be of value, and buspirone has been useful on occasion. Have found wrist or ankle weights often very useful.

Why is my right arm shaking?

Arm shaking

Arm
Shaking or tremors can be due to many things, not always serious. Any abnormal movement needs an complete and thorough evaluation by a neurologist. The type of movement, muscles involved and many other factors need to be studied - its best to be seen. You will be able to get a better handle on that shaking this way.

What causes constant shaking?

Requires evaluation

Open-uri20121112-6027-1w181hg
Medicines, drugs of abuse, toxins, medical & neurological conditions may cause tremors. Essential tremor is progressive and may be familial (others in the genetic family have it). Obtain a good medical/neurological evaluation.

Could be anything

Not all shaking results tremor itself. Shaking could result in essential tremor (normal aging process), Parkinson's and its related conditions (abnormal aging), anxiety, alcohol use, medication induced, acute illness especially infectious process, and neurodegenerative disease.

Why i am shaking when starving?

adrenaline

Blood_sugar
When your blood sugar is low, adrenaline comes out which cause your heart to beat faster, harder and possibly makes you "shake".

Is shaking your head too much bad?

Not typically

Shaking
BUT, if you shake it violently you could cause neck pain or headache but I doubt if you could shake it yourself enough to do brain damage...now if you bang your head against the wall...

My girlfriend won't stop shaking !

?shaking

Shaking
There are benign tremors where a person can have a minor tremor in the hand, there is more serious tremor...that may be parkinson like tremor, or there is a seizure like "shaking." Not sure what you are witnessing, but if the latter, take to Emergency room or call 911 if she is having seizures. Otherwise, have her get a check-up with a Dr. Good luck.
