!!!Brain Tremors Please Help!!!

Hey guys I am new to this site and I have a big question to answer:

I have recently been diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder and I also have a Mild Right Thermoidal Sinusitis. Now for the past 2 months I had sweaty palms, fast heart rate, light headedness, pressure on the head, couldnt sleep or sometimes stay asleep, dizzyness and a couple of other things which have led to me being diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder BUT there was one other thing I had been feeling along with all of those other symptoms and that is the Brain Tremors/Shivers.

So, my question is, what could they be as I am still getting these shivering brain feelings and I have just began to take anti-depresants for the anxiety and my anxiety has been fine and all of the other symptoms have gone but the brain shivering/tremors are still there please help as no one has any answers for it and the CT Scan has come up clear apart from the Mild Right Thermoidal Sinusitis.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE HELP AS THIS IS REALLY SCARING ME AND IM STARTING TO THINK IT COULD BE SOMETHING VERY SERIOUS SUCH AS MY BRAIN SIZZLING OUT OR DIEING OR A BRAIN INFECTION OR TUMOR DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THESE BRAIN TREMOR/SHIVERS COULD BE AND HAVE YOU HAD THEM WITHOUT BEING ON MEDS OR COMING OFF MEDS OR WHAT IS YOUR OPINIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!

:c onfused:

Re: !!!Brain Tremors Please Help!!!

Could you describe the brain tremors in more detail?


Is it shivery sensation from temple to the top of your head or all over? An internal shaking (head feels like it's moving but it's not) associated with momentary dizziness?

Re: !!!Brain Tremors Please Help!!!

It's a nerve, your shiver travels along the nerve path. The medical term is paresthesia, in the hands and feet it's referred to as "pins and needles" but on the head and scalp, full of nerves and sensitive blood vessels, it feels softer, like shivers or tingling. It's usually nothing scary but if the shivers move into your face, or become painful, tell your doctor immediately. It could be the beginning of Bell's Palsy or shingles.

High levels of adrenaline in the body from the chronic stress of anxiety wears you down, lowers your immune system, elevates inflammation and can cause even more problems with brain chemistry, resulting in more anxiety and depression. It's a vicious circle. It can also cause gastroparesis (slowed digestion) and all the troubles that bad digestion brings.

Make sure you're getting all your B-vitamins, they're important for nerve health and are often lacking in people with chronic illness of any kind. I take a B-vit mix just for chronic stress, Naturemade Stress B Complex.

I just remembered - I got weird head shivers years ago after quitting smoking, I had them everyday for months. They seemed to start in my sinus then move to the top and down the back of my head. It was kinda creepy feeling.

Brain Zaps are a withdrawal symptom of anti-depressants and/or benzos (Valium, Ativan, Xanax) it feels like electricity, popping or exploding, and is accompanied by nausea, vomiting and headache.

Re: !!!Brain Tremors Please Help!!!

hey thanks for your help hopefully it is nothing to worry about and its just stress

does anyone else have any ideas on what this tingling is:

its always and only on the right side of my head
its a tingling shivering feeling
there are no after symptoms once its finished
it starts from the bottom of my head goes to the middle top
lasts for about 20 seconds
I get this feeling 3 times a day sometimes
I was getting these tingling shivering feelings in my head before I started on anti-depressants

Re: !!!Brain Tremors Please Help!!!

Oddly enough I have had this happening to me the past few days. Kind of stopped me in my tracks. It is like a brain or scalp shiver. For me I think it is just below this skin and travels just a little ways across my head. It is a creepy crawly feeling. I tend to think it is part of my stress and anxiety or my low thyroid and hormonal changes. I hope it is not serious for eithor one of us. I have had it before and it went away.

Hang in there! Try not to stess ok! I get it too.

Re: !!!Brain Tremors Please Help!!!

Brain shivers? I've been having these too. I think it is more related to hormonal disorders. They say, when you cannot tell what's happening to you, it could be more of hormonal imbalance. Rule out this one by sleeping well.

I would not right away be taking any form of medication as the more you cannot tell what's happening to you. Sleep well and eat proper foods foremost and listen to your body.

Re: !!!Brain Tremors Please Help!!!

There are many things that can cause us these brain shivers. Low thyroid is one. But if you treat your low thyroid, it might lead you to hyper.

I've been taking seaweed extracts for these shivers. They can help but there must be a time to stop.

The thyroid controls how quickly the body burns energy, makes proteins, and how sensitive the body should be to other hormones.

Hey thanks for the answer to what it is, how do you know that you have a problem with this thyroid though?

Re: !!!Brain Tremors Please Help!!!

All drugs have side effects. You can study your body better by taking no drugs at first, taking enough rest and eating properly. It is better to cope with your problems through other ways the natural way.

You will know if you have thyroid problems if you find it hard to swallow. Feel your neck for lumps.

thanks heaps for another reply **** Im just soo scared its scary and its driving me insane I just want it to go away I had been having these shivering tingling feelings before the anti-depresant that I am taking so I dont think it is that....do you think that maybe I should go off the anti-depresant and see how I got then and see if the tinglings stop as before I went on the anti-depresants(wether it is the anti-depresants making it worse or not) I would only get these feelings in my right side of my head every 3 days and now its every day 5 times atleast?
