Shaking uncontrollably at times

I don´t think it´s anything serious, but I am really curious as to WHY it happens.

I´ve done it for as long as I remember. I would feel a strong emotion, such as sadness or anger, and I would start to shake. Not on the outside at first. I´d feel like I was shaking inside. I don´t really know how to explain it other then feeling sort of jittery. Then I´d start shaking on the outside. Sometimes it would get so bad I would have to sit or lay because I felt like I was going to fall or pass out.

I figured it happened to most people. They get mad and shake a little. Nothing abnormal. But it started happening with little things. Like times where I was afraid of being yelled at, versus earlier years where someone close had died and I felt great sadness.

I tried to think of reasons for this. Maybe I had a serious anxiety problem? I didn´t really have scared thoughts, but my body reacted like a scared puppy curled and shaking in a corner. I tried to calm myself everytime with slow breathing and things. But a quick nap seemed to be the best cure.

Recently I thought of the possibility of my blood pressure dropping maybe? I´m not sure if that could cause that reaction or not.

I´m only 19, but most of my life I´ve spent mostly to myself. Throughout school I was a very mellow person. I didn´t go through all these emotional rollercoasters like I do now. I´m more outgoing now and socialize with more people, so I´m exposed to more emotional things. Maybe this is the reason?

I dunno. But please help me out!!

  • I have had these same symptoms for many years. No doctor has ever really been able to figure out what my problem stems from. It started when I was 16 years old. Strong emotions can trigger it, but usually don't. I have not been able to find any true trigger. I would sometimes wake up nearly every night for a week or more with terrible trembling that was uncontrollable, which then was accompanied by slight nausea and a feeling of needing to use the bathroom frequently. During the hours I felt like this, I would also become fearful because of what was happening to me, but otherwise I am a non-fearful and pretty stress free person with a happy disposition and not given to depression. Doctors have never taken this seriously, and it is a real plague to me. I never know when it will hit.

  • I've had similar symptoms in the past. It turned out to be HVS (Hyperventilaton Syndrome). Once I realised what it was I read up about it and took steps to control my breathing. The symptoms went away immediately.

  • Stress does funny things to people. I wouldn't worry about it too much so long as it doesn't prevent you from doing what you like to do. It seems it only comes when there is an emotion that starts it, yes? If it is interfering with your life to the point where you withdraw from doing things, tell your doctor. Some people are just more sensitive than others. It probably means you're a very caring and motivated person. Best of luck.

  • This happens to me sometimes too, so you are not alone. It is almost always attached to a strong emotional stresser. My doctor chalked it up to anxiety attacks.
