Re: Shakiness, could it be a part of menopause?
adrenalin surge, dropping sugar can be the culprit (estrogen helps with insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance) even if your gluocse test is in normal range it matters not it is how your body interprets a sudden drop (tho in normal range) that counts. your brain can pick up that sudden drop and send signals to release adreanlin (especially if your insulin levels are too high as adrenalin conteracts against insulin to get adipose to release their fats) and to get the liver to make glucose a bit faster. if your sugar is still high insulin prevents the liver from putting out gluocse if it is still insulin sensitive and hence adreanlin counter mands that too to get sugar released. constant flutuations in sugar can cause this as it sends conflicting signals of glucose availbility to the brain. this is how I understand it, not a doctor or anything. anemia will also cause this too, I was severly anemic (yet doctors ignored it) and wondered about weakness and weak in the legs and that and one doctor picked up on it and told me to take 325 mg of iron for 6 months.
