A woman I knew a decade ago was having violent shaking episodes. She went to several doctors about it, including a major medical university hospital. Nobody could pinpoint the problem. It turned out to be the birth control injection she got yearly (Depo-Provera I believe). It seemed odd that none of the doctors suspected that; she knew another gal who had suffered the same symptoms after getting the same shot, presented that information to the doctor, and the riddle was solved.

That's probably not the cause of your mother's shaking, but I thought I'd throw it out here as a possibility.

I have the EXACT same thing, have you found out why this happens?
My body randomly just starts to shake uncontrollably till I cover myself with a blanket or something.
PS I'm in 80 degree florida weather so there's no reason to be cold in the first place

I'm twenty-one years old and I was diagnosed with anxiety back in April of 2011 which was one year after the death of my puppy of 16 years, Blackie. I haven't had an attack in almost a year but for some reason, I shake violently only when I'm cold but as soon as the furance comes on or I put on something warm, it stops.

Is this anxiety or am I just really cold?

You said you shake violently when you're cold so i'd say you're cold.
But if you're like me and tend to have a lot of tension in your body at times, the cold exacerbates it.
Stay warm.
And find ways to increase your circulation and keep the energy moving through your body whether it's cold or not.
Working with the body on the physical and energetic level is a good way to address issues of anxiety.
It made me so sad to read about your pup but that's a good long life for a dog.
I wish there life span was so much longer.
I've been through it and i could barely function for quite some time.
I was totally lost for a long time after she left.
