I know Graves Disease is hyperthyroid, I also know there are many other reasons hands would shake just throwing out a few I know of. I can see your status is quite appropriate to you, shame for you.

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

Could be side effects of antidepressants or other drugs they're on. I've struggled with tremors ever since I began taking Lexapro, and I'm 22 years old!

I'm in contact with a psych doctor and she doesn't really know what to do about it. I'd quit the crap if it were that easy, but I suffer terrible withdrawal symptoms... so I'm going to have to take my time weening from 10mg.

The same toxin that is making you depressed is making you shake.

It seems to me that most of you would rather shake, be depressed, have panic attacks and be miserable than find the reason and get better.

Your neurosis is you badge of honor in some twisted way.



Survival of the fittest.

It is just something I've noticed.

My mother in law had that problem. It was not Parkinson. Im not sure what it was. But she had a chip operated into her head and that stopped the shaking.

Most people I've noticed who had shaky hands were alcoholics. Drinking would stop the shaking. Temporarily.

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.

The cause of Benign Essential Tremor is unknown....

Its not from formaldehyde.....unless you have an as yet unpublished study you would care to share proving this??

That figures coming from you. ........... A typical know-it-all doctor response.

You doctors don't know what the cause is but............. " NOOOOOO it's not that! "

I have read many studies about aldehydes and their effects.

Just because you haven't that doesn't mean they don't exist.

There is NO WAY you can argue my points and the facts I presented. You simply don't know enough to do so.

Stop talking through your hat again.

Now............ go count all the money that you got from Merck today.
