Tremor, symptom of fibro?

Has anyone else noticed that they have a tremor, by that I mean I slightly shake if that makes sense. Not all the time, both my husband and my daughter have both commented on it seperatly and I have never mentioned it to them.

Thanks,

Re: Tremor, symptom of fibro?

My hands shake and big toe and the one beside that one on left foot move constantly. That is probably different than a tremor. Toes are more of twitching though. Dont know if its from fibro or not. Hands dont shake enough to where its noticeable but to me it is.

May be a good idea to bring it up to your doctor.

Re: Tremor, symptom of fibro?

Thanks for that mom477, I will bring it up with the doc next time I am there but I am so glad that you too have this symptom(not that I wish any health problems on you) sometimes there are so many varied symptoms to this annoying condition that I am afraid it is nothing to do with fibro and it's a new condition.

Regards,

Re: Tremor, symptom of fibro?

Are you on any meds, like cymbalta? Tremors can be a side effect of cymbalta. If so I'd suggest you talk to your dr, should either way actually.

If your next apt is not coming up real soon, maybe a call in to the doc wouldn't hurt.

Re: Tremor, symptom of fibro?

Mine was happening before I started cymbalta and if anything it has helped the tremor and twitching.

Re: Tremor, symptom of fibro?

Read up on Essential Tremor and see if that fits your case. I was diagnosed with it before I was diagnosed with the Fibro, Thyroid and every thing else I have.

Essential Tremor describes me all the way. Interesting.

Re: Tremor, symptom of fibro?

hi,
i recall going thru a period of about 4 years with full body tremors. from a gentle jiggle in my head to full blown body jerking. it came, it was, it went. have not had it happen at all for the past 3 years. will read up when i get home on essential tremor.
don't fight it when it happens. makes it jerk more.
peace,
blue
