Concerned with my Hand(s)

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?

Have you ever seen a doctor for this? I would say it is time. While I do not have any idea what it could be, if it is getting worse, I would consult a doctor.

Re: Concerned with my Hand(s)

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.

Re: Concerned with my Hand(s)

Could be essential tremour, but it could also be exacerbated from issues with your neck or shoulders.

Look at what you do on a daily basis...you might have a type of repetitive strain injury.

Are you consuming any other meds, otc meds, drinks, supplements, etc?

I would also suggest you get your vitamin D and range of vitamin B's checked.

Keep us updated as to what's going on.

First things first, get a docs appointment, as stated above it can be many things including something more serious, (strength loss).

I quoted your age because my son in law had a host of strange problems (at your age) that were 100% related to the "boost" drinks he was consuming...
