Uncontrollable Shaking

Do you experience uncontrollable shaking? It is an involuntary, muscle contraction and relaxation having to and fro movements of one or more body parts: hands, arms, eyes, face, head, vocal folds, trunk and legs.

If you are, then it is good to have knowledge on what causes your uncontrollable shaking.  Check out below:

-Too much coffee or other caffeinated drinks
-Stroke
-Stress, fatigue, lack of sleep, particular vitamin deficiency, and anxiety
-Neurological disorders or conditions like multiple sclerosis, stroke, traumatic brain injury, chronic kidney disease.
-Overactive thyroid is known to cause postural tremor
-Low blood sugar
-Brain tumour
-Various drugs and prescription medicines
-Excessive alcohol consumption or alcohol withdrawal can kill certain nerve cells, leading to the condition
-Body muscles traumatized by injury, disease, or as a result of systematic illness
-Withdrawal of tobacco may also induce the problem

To diagnose the cause, uncontrollable shaking can be determined by CT scan, MRI scan, blood tests and/or a bunch of other tests.

Treatment of uncontrollable shaking depends on the cause and its severity. It may include medications, some lifestyle changes, and a possible surgery if the problem is too severe.
