I am a 32 year old female in pretty decent health, except for longterm GERD which is being treated with Protonix. I am also on oral contraceptives.
In December 2001 I experienced tremors in both hands. I went to a doctor who told me not to be concerned. The tremors dissipated after two weeks.
Several days ago I developed mild tingling and burning in both hands and both feet. In addition, the tremor has returned.
Should I be concerned? What are some possible causes? To add to this, I would like to note that I have had several instances of hypoglycemia recently due to not eating enough because of the reflux disease.
There are numerous causes of tremor and peripheral neuropathy. Hypoglycemia can certainly cause episodic tremor as well as numbness.tingling in the hands and feet. Thyroid disease, certain medications such as inhalers, transplant meds, cardiac meds, etc..., anxiety, and inherited and acquired peripheral neuropathies can also cause your symptoms. In your particular case, hypoglycemia may be the culprit depending on the temporal relation to your symptoms and low blood sugar. Good luck
I ALSO HAVE TINGLING IN BOTH ARMS TO THE POINT WHERE THEY GO TO SLEEP.THEY DON'T HAVE TO BE IN ANY POSITION THEY JUST GO, AND FOR THE TREMORS I ALSO HAVE THEM,WHERE MY WHOLE BODY WILL SHAKE (ALTHOUGH I AM SEMI AWARE) FOR ABOUT 2-4 MINUETS AND THEY DON'T KNOW WHATS CAUSING EITHER, I HAD A STROKE IN JUNE 2002 AM A 47/F.
