lyme cause nerve tremors?

Does anyone else here have nerve tremors? I notice in my legs and hands they will shake (not at rest but when i use them) like just moving my index finger resting my hand on a table and looking at it, and my knees will be shaky as well at times, does anyone else get this?

Yes. I definitely had this. Both my mother and sister continue to have this problem with Lyme but refuse to believe it is from Lyme.

Not only does Lyme bacteria produce nerve toxins which contribute the nerve irritation, but it also attacks your bodys "formula" for breaking down foods and cycling them throughout the body. This process IS your metabolism. When you have an interrupted metabolism, things stop moving...and your body wants them to move. The body forces this "movement" by increasing your heart rate, which of course increases metabolism. It does this through shaking.

I have them too. My nuero and IDS contribute it to the affect that the bacteria have on the myelin sheath and directly causes the tremors as well as a host of other symptoms. With correct abx therapy, it should go away or lessen significantly.

Hey Trust 1,

Yep. Very much like what I have! And when I am active for any amount of time the "shakes" get worse - like all the muscle energy is getting used up and my body can't seem to produce more. Then the aches and pain will come. Sucks.

(I'm usually not so downtrodden. Sorry. Rough few weeks. Got long days of classes ahead. Will try to write more later).
