I am having weird trembling/vibrating/shaking feeling in my arms or neck and sometimes my jaw that wakes me in the night. (Each time a different area.) My husband says he can't feel it in bed. I usually can sleep for the first 6 hours at night then I wake from theses "trembles" around 2-3am. Sometimes they are stronger then other times. Sometimes (only on occasion) I have a rush of awake feeling just before it happens. (But no racing heart or breathing, not anxious) just a all of a sudden awake rush out of my sleep and instantly trembling that lasts 10 seconds in a wave of intensity. Sometimes I just wake while I'm already trembling. Once it starts happening then each time I try to fall back asleep it awakes me again. Three weeks after it first started then I also got a vibrating feeling in one or both arms sometimes during the day that can't been seen unless I am hold a spoon or something. Sometimes I just notice my hands are shaking without feeling the vibrating (noticeable when I do a small task like texting or holding my glass up to drink)
I went to my GP about 3 weeks after it started. She said anxiety and ran some blood tests. (No Lyme, no thyroid issue, no diabetes, no mercury). But since it has continued for 3 months straight every single night she referred me to a neurologist. The appt. is next week. I am so scared. I am worried it's MS, seizures, or something. Actually this constant problem has made me terrified because I can't figure it out! Even worse would be living with this with no answers because I can't sleep. I just want to be my "normal' again.
I've been searching the web trying to find an answer. Has anyone experienced this? Any ideas or advice? I'm 45 yr old woman and otherwise healthy. I've had anxiety problems 20 years ago, but never these symptoms (and tremors came first this anxiety now followed.) I had a partial hysterectomy 1 1/2 years ago, could it be hormonal? I tried magnesium (no help), calcium with D (this seems to lower the intensity of the tremors and make the duration longer) but no real answers.
I should mention I started having high pitch ringing in my ears (mainly left but often both). About 2-3 months before this started. Still having ringing, that never stopped. That makes me think brain tumor?
I've read a lot of old posts about this. Anyone out there ever figure out what causes this?
