For the last two years, every time I wake up, whether from a night of sleep or a nap, I feel myself shaking inside . The places that I feel the shaking vary- sometimes in my neck and arms, sometimes my abdomen, sometimes my chest. At first I thought that I had heart problems and immediately went to see a cardiologist. I have seen two cardiologists and two neurologists in the past two years and no one has ever seen anything like what I am complaining about.
A gastro-enterologist recently suggested that I may have a disorder of the autonomic nervous system, which makes some sense because the main areas that I feel the shaking seem to be associated with the vagus nerve.
I would like to know how I can get my autonomic system back in balance. This problem only bothers me as I awake each day, but the rest of the time I don't think about it much. But sometimes I worry that it is a sign of a disease that may worsen if I don't pay some attention to it.
