Does this sound like a Costochondritis effect? Shaky feelings sometimes

For example just before i washed my hands with warm water and for a few seconds after it felt like my fingers where shaking, almost vibrating. Not intense vibrating but a suttle feeling sometimes in a finger, legs or feet sometimes.

To date I have been diagnosed with Costocondritis.

Just wonder if anyone thinks this sounds like a an effect of Costochondritis or maybe even a vitamin deficiency ? Also my sleep has been a little off schedule lately so I can see that playing a part too.

Thanks.

Alex, I wouldn't even try to guess what would cause those shakes. I've had costo for many years and it's never affected anything but my ribcage both front and radiating to the back cage.

Maybe your best bet would be to see a Dr.

Alex, Tell us how tall you are and what you weigh. Are you much taller than your parents. Also, with your arms outstretched to the side how far from finger tip to fingertip. Do you have a high palate?

James, I weigh about 140 lbs. i am six feet tall. I guess I am about similar height to my parents, probably taller than my mother though. My arms stretch pretty wide. They come down a couple of inches away from my knee.

For palate my appetite is pretty normal, I'm assuming that's what you mean. I eat regular meals and drinks.

Re: Does this sound like a Costochondritis effect? Shaky feelings sometimes

Alex, why I was asking is that costochondritis seems to be a connective tissue condition and not just a painfull area inflammed area where the ribs join the sternum. I fact it may have some genetic component. It is interesting that your arms are longer than expected. Do you have unusually long thin fingers?. Is the roof of your mouth high.

My fingers are kind of long. The roof of my mouth is a little high I guess.

I've read online that shaky thing could be a pinched nerve. I haven't really gotten it in the past 24 hours but it seems like that would make sense along with genetics.

Next time you see your Doc tell him about your "wingspan" of longer arms and fingers and highish roof of your mouth. That with your rib condition would suggest further tests are perhaps needed.

Thing is I have been to the E.R. A few months ago, have gotten checked out by a cardiologist, just got an upler G.I. recently and so far despite that it seems to be discomforting often, all signs seem to point to costo. My only other thought is to check out with a doctor that deals with arthritis and muscle skeletal diseases. I think that may actually be helpful potentially. My regular doctor really doesn't know much bout costochondritis though but he thinks its muscle skeletal.

Anyway, thanks for the advice.

Alex
