I've had about 6 or 7 of these "attacks" now, all of a sudden out of nowhere my body will start trembling and shaking as if I am really cold and my temperature will go below what a digital ear themometer will record - it just flashers up low! During the attacks I feel as if I am drawling out words, but my partner assures me that i sound normal!

These 6 or 7 attacks have been over the past month or so, I have had blood tests for diabetes, kidney function and thyroid and they came back as normal.
My partner has suggested that maybe I am having panic attacks, but from what I have read about panic attacks the only thing I am having in common with them is the shaking - no sense of sudden death, no hyperventilating, no sweats etc either.

I am at a loss as to what to do now, I don't really want to visit the doctor again as I dont really have anything concrete to offer, but the problem is the more I put it off and try to self diagnose online the more worrying the possibles causes I find are.

For example I have had constipation issues for about the same period of time and when you add that to my symptoms it then comes up with a possible cause of TIA's or strokes which is very worrying indeed! I have also had huge problems with word selection recently as well, being unable to think of words in order to complete a sentence from time to time!

I suppose I shall visit the doctor, but as it is 3 in the morning and I have just had another one of these "attacks" then I guess I am just venting my fears at the moment as there is nothing else I can do!

If anyone does have any advice or suggestions I would be grateful to hear them.

  • Well thats another 2 night out of 2 I have awoke with these shakes, I have now tried going to bed virtually fully clothed with an extra duvet on in case it is a temperature thing and it is still happeneing.Woke up shaking this morning, and my left side was quite warm whilst my right side was kind of clammy and cold to touch.Also it has occured to me that there has been a lot of gurgling from my digestive system when these attacks have been happening and I have been constipated for quite some time - could this have any bearing on anything?Or am I slowly cracking up? :/
