Re: Shakiness, could it be a part of menopause?

I have been post-menopausal since 2010 and the past year I have had internal shaking. It started in my feet and I thought it may be restless leg but not sure. My doctor thought it was my blood pressure but now I am on medication and my blood pressure is under control but I still shake. What has really scared me is now I have it in my head. It only happens when I lay down in bed and try to go to sleep. I also have fibromyalgia and thought it was a symptom of that. Xanax does stop the shaking but I don't like taking it often. I am trying progesterone cream again. I took it for about two years and it worked well for hot flashes and vaginal dryness, low libido but this time it doesn't seem to be helping much and doesn't seem to stop the shakes.
I hate this. I wish I understood what is going on.
