hi I'm a 20 year old male i have had shakes In my body mostly noticeable in my hands 24/7 it looks like I'm really nervous and gets really bad with slight adrenaline i have had this since i was a young kid so its not due to medications or stress .......i also don't have anxiety or irritability and normal blood pressure i do however have slight insomnia to where it takes 30 mins to a hour to sleep not sure if its related ...... i have often been told its due to my high metabolism but now my metabolism has slow down a lot and my shakes are still as bad if not slowly getting more noticeable ........any opinions would be greatly appreciated

please note that I'm not looking for a cure or medications just really want to know why thanks again :D

  • Do you drink coffee? Maybe lots of it? When you say metabolism, I would think they have checked your thyroid levels. Are there any other issues you have?

A blood work up by your GP doctor would take the guess work out of it!! If the blood work did not reveal anything the doc may refer you to a Neurologist if warranted!!
