Be sure they do a urine sample to rule out bladder infection.

The shakes, tremors, vibrations, purring kinds of symptoms are often experienced by people diagnosed with Lyme Disease. I haven't read your other posts so don't know why you are posting on this board but I will also mention that people with Lyme Disease can also present with AD type of symptoms.

Re: the shakes?????????

Hmmm....after a few months in the AF, I noticed my Mom doing this sort of "jerky movement". Quite a while ago, someone here mentioned seeing similiar movements in their loved one. I had been thinking Mom's sudden movements were from a hidden heart problem, and was somewhat relieved when others here had also observed it in their loved one.

They called it "Myoclonus jerks". Look this up, and you'll see that it can appear as single little jerky motions (like we do when falling asleep)...or multiple...and often accompanies Alzheimer's. Does this sound like it?

Hope this helps.......Pam
