Hello, my name is Cal, aged 19.
I have always had an abnormal shake in my hands, if I place my hands straight, they are visibly shaking more than some people say they should be.
It is impossible for me to hold an object with a steady hand without it shaking, such as holding a piece of paper that me and a friend would both try to read from.
However, more recently in my left hand, I am showing some real signs of weakness in my fingers, specially my thumb and the index finger, today for example I was trying to lift a jammed cable free, but the area was awkward so it required me to use my left hand to pull it out when lifting with my right, but I couldn't even pull it with those fingers, it was as if they just wouldn't add pressure even though im really trying.
Sometimes it makes a weird strain feeling in my wrist, just wondering if maybe im over concerned or there is something I should take possible awareness of?
Shaky hands don't mean a lot by themselves - lots of people have an 'essential tremor' that isn't really significant medically... your hands can shake from fatigue, or concentration, or from anxiety/an excess of adrenalin, or even too much caffiene in your diet, and so on. But if you are having weakness as well it's time to go see a doctor and make sure there isn't anything serious going on.
