After many stresses in my life,I started to notice left hand shake when I would hold paper,etc & was more agressive in rest position. My left arm muscles are sore, & feel like I have just lifted 1,000 lbs. of weight. I am 41,& have been healthy until recently having high blood pressure. A MRI of spine showed a pinched nerve/2 herniated discs in C5-6, C6-7 area & I was referred to a neurologist. Many doctors have said shaking not from pinched nerve.

Based on the normal TSH, T3, and T4 your thyroid is functioning normal. The anti-thyroglobulin and thyroid peroxidase anti-bodies can be seen in normal people, and are more commonly seen in relatives of patients who have had auto-immune thyroid disease.

What I can tell you is that it commonly starts on one side of the body, has predominantly a restng tremor (but can have a postural component), and can occur at the age of 40. Since it is crucial to make an accurate diagnosis at this point, I would recommend having a second opinion with another movement disorder neurologist to confirm the diagnosis. I would recommend going to an academic center. If you are in the area, we have excellent physicians in our movement disorders sections. Good luck.
I also have these problems. I can't hold a coffee cup with one hand. My Doctor says they are Tremors. He can't tell me why I have them. I do have an Arachnoid Cyst, with a shunt. I wish someone could tell me something.
In my last comment I forgot to also include the fact that I have had headaches for the past 10 years or so. Very bad pain in and behind the eyes. Vertigo has been a problem for along time as well as seizures. I have been on Lamictal for the past two years.I am at a loss as far as what else to do.
