Do you have shaking hands?
If you do, you could be deficient in MAGNESIUM and VITAMIN B1
Early symptoms of magnesium deficiency can include fatigue, anorexia, irritability, insomnia, and muscle tremors or twitching.
People only slightly deficient in magnesium become irritable, high-strung, sensitive to noise, hyperexcitable, apprehensive, and beligerent. If the deficiency is more severe, or prolonged, they may develop twitching, tremors, irregular pulse, insomnia, muscle weakness, jerkiness, and leg and foot cramps; their hands may shake so badly that their writing becomes illegible.
Electroencephalograms, electrocardiograms, and electromyograms, or the records of electrical waves in the brain, heart, and muscles, all become abnormal.
If magnesium is severely deficient, the brain is particularly affected. Clouded thinking, confusion, disorientation, marked depression, and even terrifying hallucinations of delerium tremens are largely brought on by a lack of this nutrient and remedied when magnesium is given.
Improvement is usually dramatic within hours after magnesium is taken.
If shaking or trembling has been present for less than 2 years, it may be caused by temporary conditions such as:
Increased anxiety or stress
Caffeine excess or caffeine withdrawal
Nicotine or smoking excess or nicotine withdrawal
Alcohol excess or alcohol/drug withdrawal
Such shaking or trembling could also be caused by conditions such as:
As many as 1 in 20 people older than age 40 and 1 in 5 people over 65 may have essential tremor (ET). There may be as many as 10 million people with ET in the United States, and many more worldwide. Essential tremor is much more common than most neurologic disease, with the exception of stroke, and is more common than Parkinson's disease ï¿½?? a disorder characterized by resting tremor, stiffness and slowness of movement.
