    anyone suffer from shaking hands, trembles.? I've had them since I was a teenager. One hand is worse than the other now. And some days are worse than others too. Haven't found anything to help much so far. Doctors don't seem very interested either. Anyone?

    I got told last night that a woman (i'd assume shes mid - late 50's) who I play volleyball against has been diagnosed with Parkinsons. The day before she was diagnosed they bought a house in Castle Hill at auction so they couldn't pull out of the sale. Now because of this diagnosis, they are looking to sell that house which they've only owned for 5 months and another one they own in West Pennant Hills. Her husband says they mightnt lose any money on the Castle Hill home sale.. anyway, good luck to them.

    Now me personally, I had some shaking hands a few years ago, it was noticed by teammates when I was going to set a ball in a match... sometimes I wouldn't be doing anything but if I randomly stuck my hands out they would just tremble. Not a lot but noticeable if you looked at them. I don't get any trembling now though.

    Yes, always have. My aunt had hers diagnosed as Essential Tremor and I suspect I have the same. That wording might help you with your doctor?

    I've mostly gotten by by hiding it. Ie ordering a mug rather than a tea cup when going for coffee as its easier to hold.

    The Parkinson's test seems to be that if you shake when gripping something tightly it's not good, but if you shake while trying to be deft with something it's just a muscle brain thing.
    I'd like to find some sort of herbal / mineral solution. Not into the heavy drugs and don't really fancy brain surgery. I strongly suspect marijuana would be helpful but that's another story.

    Linky - there's more than one type of parkinson's - one of my tenants had the ridgity but not the shakes which is the most noticible symptom.

    Why does she have to sell the house after the diagnosis?

    They just want to get rid of a lot of debts and be stress free.

    My grandmother had it. My sister got it quite young, and I around mid 30's. My brother's starting to develop it - mid 40's. My mum and Uncle definitely don't have it.

    There is treatment available but mine's not severe enough for that yet. As DT said you can get by by hiding it until it becomes severe. It seems to get worse with age.

    It comes and goes and alters in severity.

    It's worse when:
    After a shower.
    First 15 mins after waking.
    Lifting heavy stuff.
    Anxious/nervous.

    Do other sufferers have the same triggers?

    My hands have trembled since I was a kid but it seems to be subsiding as I get older. Possibly stress levels?

    I've had trembling hands for a few years now - I suspect it's a side effect of medication I'm on. Typically it gets worse if I'm tired and/or stressed. If I'm both, it's particularly bad - fortunately that doesn't happen too often :)

    I know some muscle spasm issues can be helped with magnesium supplements (good quality ones with calcium as well), but if it is not muscle related, don't think it would help...

    cheers,

    It seems worse for me when I've been using power tools. Grinder, plane, drills etc. it's my left hand mostly. I'm right handed and sometimes have trouble playing guitar.
    I take zinc, magnesium , turmeric and pro biotics. Also drink Cabulcha.

    Trembling hands can also be a symptom of Graves Disease, which causes an overactive thyroid.

    If untreated it can lead to a 'thyroid storm' condition which is very serious
