Not sure if anyone mentioned this but lack of a certain B vitamin can cause this.

I have the same problem. It's pretty rare for me to shake, but there have been times when I couldn't control my hands. It's usually because I've not eaten all day -- that or I've been doing strenuous work with my hands.

I shake from low blood sugar sometimes. It makes me feel weak all over though so I take care of it quickly.

I would think a more noticable shake would be something like the tremors mentioned, etc.

If I take a Benedryl or anything with acetaminaphin in it it will cause me to shake and even kick in my sleep. It could be something as simple as that.

It is just something I've noticed.
Shaking is a symtom of so many differnt things its difficult to say, reaction from medications, addictions, low blood sugar, vitamin defincencies, Parkinsons, hypothyroid.

My hands use to shake unmercifully, right off the bat it was assumed I had an addiction by my employer, the Dr, passed it off as nerves and
anxiety during a bad time in my life, finally found someone in the medical profession who knew what he was do'in and was diagnosed with Graves disease..my thyroid was 4x the normal size.

When alcohol, sugar, aspartame is oxidized in the liver it turns to formaldehyde and then to formic acid and expelled.

Unfortunately formaldehyde only turns into the non-toxic formic acid and expelled in the presence of certain B vitamins.

Drinking alcohol, sugar, coffee, smoking and other environmental toxins deplete the necessary levels of B vitamins leaving the formaldehyde, unprocessed and building up in the bloodstream.

This is the main cause of what doctors have labeled "Essential Benign Tremors" (they refuse to cure it but they named it).

here's a great read about the hazards of formadehyde.

My hands shake when I'm angry and also when I drink coffee. Also, when I sit down at a poker table, without fail my hands will shake for the first 5 minutes.

Graves Disease is hypERthyroid, not hypo. When I was Hyperthyroid my hands would shake, some people thought I was a spaz, others looked at me like I had a major cocaine problem...neither was the case, (ok sure though I can act like a total spazz sometimes) but anyway the shaky hands can also come with too much thyroid medication after surgery of thyroid removal (that happened to me one round of levo. post op).

I'm sure there are many other reasons for the shakes as well, as others have already listed.
