From over three months im having massive headaches and sleep disturbances. Apart from that occasionally I have slight tremors in my hands.

Work up needed now: Sudden changes like this are always suspicious. A full work up includes a neurological exam, MRI brain, and medicine review.

I get bad tremors in my hands but now my legs will shake so badly at times it feels like I can't control them at all. Any ideas what could be?

I get bad tremors in my hands but now my legs will shake so badly at times it feels like I can't control them at all. Any ideas what could be?

Right question...: ...wrong place. When I was a neurology resident, my chairman said, "Never do a neurologic examination over the telephone." (It was pre-Web.) The disclaimer you agreed to says that HealthTap docs don't diagnose. You're on Rx'd meds so you must have a doctor & what you're describing doesn't sound subtle. What does (s)he say? Sounds like you may need a neurology referral. ...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!

Certainly we would evaluate and give an opinion but would more than likely as you to be seen by a pediatric neurologist.
