My 10 year old has had asthma since birth. It got better over the years, however lately I've noticed that whenever he does any kind of physical activity even for a short amount of time, his hands get very very shaky. Its disturbing to see. I've never seen anything like it with him before. The only thing I could relate that to, is an elderly person with heart or lung disease. I do have an appt. scheduled for him for tomorrow morning, but I'm just wondering if this is normal for people with asthma???
Hi there, I also have asthma as my hands do not shake like that. Is your son on any kind of puffer such as Ventalin or Advair? Puffers such as those can cause muscle shaking like that if the person has a reaction to it. However, asthma itself would not cause shaking like that unless the body is struggling to get oxygen. Hope this helps.
