I am Irene, 22 years old, I shake a lot whether in public or alone. For example when I am drinking water, my hand keeps shaking and I some times end up pouring the water on myself. When I hold a microphone or a piece of paper in my hands, it is worse, what could be the problem? Is it a symptom of a disease?
Does the trembling occur all over the body or only hands are involved? Trembling alone can be result of anxiety. Due to anxiety, there is release of neurochemicals in the body that can lead to trembling also at times. Overactivity of the thyroid gland can manifest as tremulousness. It can also be due to neurological problems, but in that case there would be associated symptoms like giddiness, headache, vomiting, paralysis of body parts, e.t.c. any one or more of these symptoms. Some drugs like salbutamol can cause trembling as an adverse effect.
In your case trembling seems to be related to anxiety. Learn to be relaxed. Keep your mind filled with positive thoughts and keep yourself busy with creative work.
This will divert the mind from stress, negativity and resultant anxiety and tremulousness. Professional counsellors are also available to help a person relax with counselling and mild tranquilizers. You can also do tests for thyroid function, to exclude hyperthyroidism a treatable condition.
